Chadwick Residence provides supportive housing and a variety of professional services for homeless women and their children in an environment that empowers them to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to increase their self-sufficiency.
Chadwick Residence provides women in need with safe, affordable housing and the opportunity to seek out academic, vocational and life management training to prepare them to reenter the community as productive individuals capable of sharing their strengths and talents. Unlike emergency shelters, which provide temporary housing, Chadwick Residence provides supportive housing for as long as needed. This longer time frame affords opportunities for:
Referrals come primarily from homeless shelters, battered women's shelters, and a variety of other social service agencies, churches and schools. Many residents have completed their GED, vocational training programs (e.g. CNA, Child Care) Associate and Bachelor degree programs during their stay at Chadwick Residence. Our goal is for the women to leave the residence as productive, self-sufficient individuals.
