Lucy’s Hearth is celebrating its 30th year serving homeless women and their children!
Lucy’s Hearth was started in 1984 by an interfaith council formed to repurpose the convent located on St. Lucy’s Church Property. The council determined that there was a need for homeless shelter for women and so it began;opening its’ doors with one staff member and a budget of $20,000, Lucy’s provided shelter on a night to night basis.
Today, Lucy’s Hearth is a private, independent 501(c)3 providing shelter and services to hundreds of homeless women and children per year. We are more than just a shelter – providing essential programs and services such as financial literacy education and parenting classes. Our programs and services designed to increase each families’ self-sufficiency and assist them in achieving permanent affordable housing.
