Learn More About Our Friends Place

The non-residential SOAR program, gives life skills to young women to help build their own Strengths, Opportunities,  Allies and Resiliency, before they can become homeless.

Our Transitional Living Center (TLC) program provides single women ages 18-24, who are not pregnant or parenting, with a supportive home where they can learn the skills they need to mature into self-reliant adults.

We are bringing our friends together to celebrate our 30th Anniversary!  Join us for an enchanting evening of gourmet dining and cocktails, LIVE and silent auctions, dancing, casino games, and the prestigious 14th Annual Ebby Awards.
