Our mission is to help individuals and families, who are experiencing homelessness, achieve their God-given potential by providing a holistic program of stable housing, supportive services and loving relationships.
BHA operates a transitional housing program for women and children experiencing homelessness, owns 14 parcels of land for 24 apartments, employs eight staff members, and has 13 member churches as well as many other supporting congregations, businesses, individuals and grant-making organizations who believe in the work of BHA. The Transitions program works because women set their own goals, while we provide love, support, accountability and guidance. For many families we serve, this is the first time that they have been in a safe place, with supportive people around them. Program Staff work directly with each family every week. They provide life skills coaching, information and referrals to community resources. They also help participants develop and achieve goals based on the needs of each family.
