LAURA'S HOME

At Laura's Home, Women & Children Find Rest & Restoration

For women and children, we are a bridge from crisis to stability and self-sufficiency. With 166 beds and 55 rooms, Laura’s Home offers specialized, wraparound services designed to empower families and individuals to live healthy lives. Until responses to COVID-19 went into effect, such as a moratorium on evictions and additional temporary housing options, every room in Laura's Home had been full with a waiting list for more than 5 years. As these temporary measures come to an end, we are anticipating an even greater need for our services to women and children.  It is our hope to offer life-changing, meaningful solutions to the women and children of Cleveland who need lasting change. And not simply for them, but for generations to come.
