Finding Your Home

On our first night in 1976, House of Ruth gave shelter to eight homeless women in the basement of a row home on Massachusetts Avenue. We knew from day one that women in crisis needed a lot more than an overnight stay and a bag of groceries. When treated with respect and understanding, and given the skills for independence, women who have survived domestic abuse, homelessness, and trauma change their lives.
