Client Intake

Who we are:

  • Gilead House serves homeless single mothers and their children. It is a place of hope, healing, and life-changing transformation.
  • The Gilead House program consists of three practical pillars that empower women to reach their full potential. Moms enter the disciplined program to learn new life skills, receive case management support and move toward financial stability and independence.
  • Gilead House does NOT provide emergency services.


1. STEP ONE: Complete Client Contact Form.

2. STEP TWO: Gilead House Director of Family Services will contact the client directly to arrange an interview.

3. STEP THREE: Client must pass a drug test and additional laboratory screening, background check and reference check.

4. STEP FOUR: Client acceptance or denial into the program.
