Julia's to open new home in Lakewood this spring
Hello to All Our Faithful Friends of Julia’s,
At every turn in the road, something wonderful has happened to show that Julia’s is meant to grow. It’s happened again! This May, we are moving to a new and larger home in Lakewood and welcoming a new house director to Julia’s family. This opportunity allows us to expand our mission to offer women job skills, life-changing direction and spiritual support. I’m so glad to be able to start sharing our plans with you. More >
At Julia's, we know that homelessness might last for a time in one's life. That doesn't mean it has to last for a lifetime.
If a woman is motivated, we offer the tools to leave homelessness behind, for good. Our approach is to engage each woman’s mind, body and spirit in practical education by giving her the tools to make a living and build an independent life. She does the rest! At Julia’s, the woman learns for herself how to break out of the cycle of homelessness so she can reclaim her self-sufficiency and hope. More >
What is Julia's?
Who was Julia?
Julia Greeley was a courageous, faith-filled, single woman who overcame slavery and poverty to become a source of hope to others even less fortunate than she.
Life didn’t spare Vicki from hardship and homelessness, even though she’s held good jobs, been to college, and stayed free of the addiction trap.
The shattering blow for Vicki was the death of her fiance in the summer of 2012. Suddenly, the sensitive, soft-spoken 54-year-old found herself in a bewildering spiral. The couple had planned to let Vicki finish her college degree while her fiance supported them. But after his death, Vicki was forced to drop out of her adult education classes and abandon plans for a business degree. More >
