Our Impact

Fast Facts & Highlights From 2023

Through your generosity, The Women’s Home continuum of care created pathways to opportunity for over 5,000 clients during the year.

We are proud to share the following highlights of our 2023 program achievements made possible with your support:

Residential Treatment Program

In 2023, our Residential Treatment Program served 113 unduplicated women who were homeless due to mental health and substance use disorders. We provided residential behavioral treatment and wrap-around services to 44 women in the Intensive Treatment Phase and 85 women in the Supportive Treatment Phase. Success for clients in the Intensive Treatment phase (89 days) was establishing mental stability and maintaining sobriety. Of clients who completed our Intensive Treatment Phase, 89% achieved mental stability, 100% maintained sobriety and 59% transitioned to continue their recovery journey in our Supportive Treatment Phase (6 to 18 months). For the Supportive Treatment phase, success was centered on clients maintaining emotional stability and sobriety while obtaining a steady source of income and a stable living situation. Among the clients who participated in the supportive phase for at least six months, 100% achieved mental stability, 78% maintained sobriety, 100% left with a steady source of income, and 52% left having obtained stable, permanent housing.

Permanent Supportive Housing Program

In 2023, together our Adele and Ber Piper Family Place and Jane Cizik Garden Place housing communities in Spring Branch East stabilized the lives of 340 low-income tenants with affordable housing and support services. The on-site case managers at our housing communities provided tenants assistance with applying for food stamps, Medicare/Medicaid, Social Security, and other mainstream benefits. They helped tenants with referrals for low-cost mental and physical health care providers, guidance and referrals for emergency assistance, and financial resources. Transportation to grocery stores and medical appointments was provided, which is a crucial service for those who cannot easily navigate the public transportation system due to illness or a disability. Our two housing communities also provided emergency food pantries services, which is a vital service for our tenants when they experience financial setbacks that result from illness, job loss or other events.

The WholeLife® Collaborative

The WholeLife® Collaborative (WLC) is a community-based coalition that collectively offers a range of wrap-around support services to help vulnerable families flourish in the Spring Branch East (SBE) community of Houston, TX. Led by The Women’s Home, this effort is centered in SBE at our 30,000 sq. ft, Mabee WholeLife® Service Center, where we and our core partners have developed a coordinated, community-based, integrated care system. Our WLC offers holistic care for the entire family that includes primary and behavioral healthcare, youth development programs, adult basic education, vocational coaching/workforce development, physical wellness, basic needs assistance, and other wrap-around services.

Together, The Women’s Home and the members of our WholeLife Collaborative collectively served 4,908 individuals at the Mabee WholeLife Service Center including our tenants at Garden Place and Family Place. During the year, 3,838 clients received low-cost primary healthcare services, 458 clients participated in behavioral health services including case management, mental health counseling and peer support services, 370 children participated in after school or summer youth development programs,  78 families received food pantry assistance, and 52 adults participated in vocational/workforce development programs.
