Transforming Lives in the Fight Against Homelessness

Open Arms Housing operates three programs through which we serve chronically homeless women and families. We run our two single-site apartment buildings, as well a scattered-site Permanent Supportive Housing Program

our impact

Over our nine years, open arms housing has prevented subsequent homelessness 94% of the time.

Housing is a Basic Right

“It is hard to argue that housing is not a fundamental human need. Decent, affordable housing should be a basic right for everybody in this country. The reason is simple: without stable shelter, everything else falls apart.”

Matthew Desmond, Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City
