Sims House

Sims House is a transitional shelter for women and their children. It provides a 90-day stay for its residents and serves over 60 guests a year. While at Sims House, residents must find a job, participate in group and individual therapy with a licensed family counselor, help with chores around the house and learn about financial planning and wise money management. The women are also provided with guidance by a full-time case manager who aids them in finding permanent housing, jobs and GED programs.
