Mission Statement

To establish and operate housing programs for homeless families with children that help them obtain permanent housing and to provide services to help families achieve economic self-sufficiency.


Hawthorn Hill has been helping homeless families with children for more than 26 years. Hawthorn Hill helps families in need of emergency shelter (New Directions Shelter program) and supportive housing (The Home Connection program) in our community. Families served are very low-income, and approximately 50% are of minority/ethnic status. During 2011, Hawthorn Hill served 153 homeless families, including 363 children, through our two programs who otherwise may have been living on the streets.
