What kind of person steals bikes from homeless women? The Bicycle Tree very generously donated bicycles to WISEPlace and found a sturdy bike rack for us. For many of our residents, a bicycle is their only means of transportation. We arrived to find the bicycles stolen! We know you will help us turn this day of disappointment into a day of joy. Please support our iheartoc campaign which runs until noon today. Make a donation.

Your gift makes an immediate positive impact on homeless women in our county. 

Transitional Housing

WISEPlace offers transitional housing to homeless single women.  Our Steps to Independence program provides safe and affordable housing, case managment, employment assistance, individual counseling, and links to community services that empower women to rebuild their lives. 

Our Positive Step program assists women that have been chronically homeless.  This is a second stage program for highly motivated women that have started on the road to independence.
