The Women’s Home was established in Houston in 1957, built around our mission to help women in crisis regain their self-esteem and dignity and empower them to return to society as productive individuals.  Our programs are targeted to women in the Houston area who are homeless or on the verge of homelessness, with many residents suffering from addiction or mental illness, or both.  With nearly 60 years of service, we have helped countless women through our long-term residential treatment program in Montrose and our permanent supportive housing program in Spring Branch. Both programs offer a solution to women who seek a safe, sober and drug-free community where they can recognize and reach their unique potential for success.  For more information, please visit
