services we provide

“My home.“

Families come to us with only a few small belongings. Because of the careful preparations of our donors and volunteers, we can immediately provide them with basic household furnishings to start their journey to independence. Each family is provided with a fully furnished apartment to call home for the entirety of their stay at Lindsey House.  Our belief is that mothers will be able to learn and complete our curriculum much more successfully if they do not have to worry about where their children will be sleeping at night.  

Supportive Services

Our unique approach in providing supportive services allows each family to maximize goal achievement. Each program participant meets one-on-one with a Program Services Coordinator to set goals and create an Individualized Service Plan. Lindsey House has three core curriculum pieces which take 9-12 months to complete.

Financial Literacy

Each family is taught how to live on a cash basis budget. Families also reduce or eliminate debt and create a savings fund while at Lindsey House. We believe a woman must be able to manage her resources to become independent.

Life Skills

In order to manage everyday situations, all independent adults need to have a secure grasp on many important life skills. The Lindsey House Life Skills curriculum includes lessons on time management, problem solving, planning, communication, etc. All of us practice these skills every day to exist in this world.

Workplace Proficiency:

The Workplace Proficiency curriculum addresses soft skills needed to secure employment and advance in any career. Lessons include resume building, interview skills, basic computer skills and more.
