More Info

There are 1.6 million homeless youths under the age of 18 years and that number is not declining. Twenty-three percent of homeless families with children are headed by young women between the age group of 16 to 19 years. Fifty-nine percent were European American, 22% were non-Hispanic African American, 5% were Hispanic, with the remaining self-identified as American Indian, Asian or Pacific Islander, or biracial. They leave for many reasons: problems in the family, economic disadvantages, or residential instability. Homelessness among pregnant youth can be eradicated by equipping them with the right tools to achieve independence and gain control of their life and future. Women of Strength was founded on the belief that people matter and these women and their children matter greatly. Being a mothers is not the easiest job in the world, but being pregnant and homeless is profound. Women of Strength NV two-year transitional housing program not only provides immediate relief for the immediate need of shelter, but also provides a way to tap into their inner strength the all possess and rebuild their life. After completion of our program these women not only regain their life but now their unborn child has a future. We are in need of funding whether in-kind donations or monetary we greatly appreciate your help.
