The vision of Clare House in Lancaster, PA is a community where all women and children have a sense of optimism, confidence and hope for the future. The organization’s mission is to serve homeless women and children in a caring environment, through life skills training and support, leading to self-sufficiency.
Every day Clare House receives calls from women who find themselves homeless as a result of abusive relationships, addiction, loss of employment, or simply slipping through “the system.” These women need a safe place for themselves and their children where they can turn their lives around. They need someone who understands and is willing to give them a hand. Clare House teams with women in the Lancaster community to assess their needs and deficits before building life skills to inspire a brighter tomorrow.
As families move on from needing the support the house provides, it needs to be cleaned before welcoming new families, which is done with the help of volunteers like Listrak employees who contribute VTO hours. Visit the Clare House websiteto learn more about volunteer opportunities.
