Together in Gratitude

Thanksgiving will soon be upon us and with the holiday comes an important tradition for The Women's Home. Every year staff and residents come together the Wednesday before Thanksgiving for our Grateful Circle. This is a time where we share with each other the things we truly appreciate in our lives. The Grateful Circle reminds many of the staff why we do this work and the impact we have on the lives of our residents. Others find it a humbling reminder of the important things as each year our residents take nothing for granted in their gratitude for each step of progress, big and small. Our residents are grateful for many things including reconnecting with family members, getting the job they tried hard for, being able to handle daily chores, and having their health again.

Special Events

Growing a Little Greener


The Women's Home's Treatment and Transitional housing has some exciting new additions. In November, we were chosen to receive a $5,000 Direct Energy's Reduce Your Use for Good™ Grant. A part of Direct Energy's support of green practices, the grant helps nonprofits purchase energy efficient products and services to cut down their energy consumption and costs. Micah Hirschfield, Direct Energy's External Relations Director, and member of the Board of Directors for The Home said the goal of the Reduce Your Use for Good Grant is to "help keep the dollars they've earned for their missions" and off of infrastructure maintenance.

An Evening at Downtown Abbey
On a chilly Friday evening, November 14, 2014, The Corinthian downtown took on the elegance of early 20th century Yorkshire aristocracy for our annual gala. Glittering chandeliers, elegant tables set with lace brought the theme of "An Evening at Downtown Abbey" to life. Guests dined and danced the night away to the Richard Brown Orchestra, who performed instrumental classics worthy of the grand duchess as well as live renditions of contemporary favorites.

Something New and Daring



Many who have been homeless and struggle with addiction or mental illness live in shame from the long shadow stigma casts on them. A new treatment at The Women's Home will help them let go of the shame that keeps them in their past's control and empower them to live daringly.


In October 2014, two of our clinical staff were selected to attend an intensive five day training for The Daring Way™. The Daring Way™ is an experiential methodology based upon the research of Dr. Brené
Brown, a research professor at the University of Houston Graduate College of Social work and author of Daring Greatly: How the Courage to be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead
