Mission Statement

     Simon House is a nonprofit transitional living facility for homeless adult women who are pregnant or have children.  In collaboration with other agencies and organizations, we provide a safe, stable, and healthy environment that encourages, educates, and empowers residents to become self-sufficient and productive members of our community and the larger society.

About Simon HouseHomeless Womens Shelter

     Simon House provides a home for six homeless women, age 18 and over, who are pregnant or have children.  Families come primarily from Franklin and surrounding counties in Central Kentucky.

     Besides providing a residential setting for women and their children, Simon House provides specific strategies and training designed to develop personal and family stability.  Its purpose is to enable mothers in crisis to become whole, self-sufficient, and able to obtain permanent housing and employment.  The residents are also encouraged to develop coping and parenting skills necessary for a stable, successful, independent family life.

Simon House also provides rapid rehousing assistance for familes leaving the Simon House residential program or for other homeless families. Through this program, clients may receive limited financial assistance for rent and utilities while they obtain stable community housing. Further, families with children who are at imminent risk of becoming homeless may be assisted with homelessness prevention services providing limited assistance with rent and utilities to prevent eviction.

Simon House additionally provides material assistance to low-income community families who need food, clothing, diapers, cleaning supplies, personal care products, or some houshold items.
