Sheffield Place uses integrated supportive services that include evidence-based practices, family system theory, consumer-driven activities, and recovery orientation to empower our families to heal from their trauma.  

How Families Gain Admission

Sheffield Place serves highly traumatized homeless mothers with multiple barriers to success, including: mental health and addiction issues, domestic violence backgrounds, low educational attainment, and felony convictions, among others. The agency accepts mothers with up to five children.  A mother who meets these criteria is encouraged to call Sheffield Place. Following an initial phone conversation, she may be scheduled for a personal interview and tour.  

The Programs at Sheffield Place

Sheffield Place offers four fully-integrated programs to empower the families as they make the difficult journey from homelessness to self-sufficiency:

1) Residential Housing Services provides mothers and their children with onsite housing consisting of a two room living unit with a private bath and a shared kitchen and laundry facilities on each of the three floors of the shelter facility.

2) Residential Clinical Services provides therapy, parenting training, and strengths-based case management services for mothers and their children.  

3) Aftercare Clinical Services provides group and individual therapy and case management for families once they achieve sufficient stability to transition into permanent housing in the community.

4) Permanent Housing Services provides housing for families in houses owned and operated by the agency once the families have become stable enough to transition from the shelter into permanent housing.
