Since 1994, we have provided housing and supportive services to homeless and low-income women who want to improve their lives and become self-sufficient.

We are an innovative and experienced local agency making a difference in the lives of hundreds of women and children each year.Core features of our programs include the provision of safe housing, education, life skills training, and links to community resources to enable women to build the skills they need to achieve independence and provide successfully for their children.

Volunteer Opportunities

“Adopt” a Supportive Housing family for six to twelve months and help them stay within their budgets by making donations for birthdays, special celebrations and holidays. We will match you with a specific family and you will be the first to learn about updates for the family and your generosity will put less stress on their budgets and will show more support on their path to independence and self-sufficiency.

Back to School
The families we serve are on tight budgets and the price of education is overwhelming. Help ease the financial burden by providing a book bag for a specific child filled with school supplies, and a school outfit for the children or a book bag and school supplies (no clothing) for a woman taking classes or starting a new job. We start matching donors and students in July and backpacks are due in mid-August.

Holiday Gift Program
Make the holidays merry by providing gifts for a woman or family in need! We will assign you a family or families and provide their specific gift wish list. If you want, you can split the list up among family, friends, coworkers, or purchase the items yourself. We start matching donors to families in October and gifts are due by the end of November. Contact Ashley as soon as possible if you would like to get more information!

Join a Committee
This is your chance to get involved with Home of the Sparrow for a longer period of time! Join one of our committees made up of friendly volunteers and help plan one of our exciting and much anticipated fundraisers like Jazz at Brushwood or Fashion to Fund the Future!

Meals in a Box
You can help a woman on a tight budget feed her family healthy and nutritious meals by filling a box or a bag with the nonperishable items on our shopping list! If you have children, bring them with you to the grocery store and teach them about the joys of giving!
