OUR WORK

Toby's Place

Toby's Place provides safe, hotel-style housing for single women or mothers experiencing poverty or homelessness. With meals, safe shelter, spiritual enrichment, life-skill courses, and case management, we seek to help these women restore broken pieces in their life and provide a beacon of hope for their future.

Pre-Program

Women and their children are offered a safe place to live for up to 30 days. The heart of Pre-Program is to see women come off the street into a safe environment where they can discover their next best step. Over 50% of Pre-Program guests transition into the long-term Program at Toby’s Place. Others find a new home with one of our partners in the city.

Pre-Program residents stay in hotel-style rooms, with access to nutritious meals, laundry services, and showers. Staff members are available to maintain a safe environment and to talk with guests about our Transitional Program.

Transitional Program

The Transitional Program at Toby’s Place offers long-term shelter and support for women seeking to restabilize their living conditions.

Transitional Program

The goal of this program is that residents will leave transformed by Christ’s love, equipped with sustainable practices and habits that will help them excel in everyday life. Our 6-month program includes 3 meals, hotel-style rooms, and holistic care. Residents attend 2 classes a day, taught by Oliver Gospel staff members or volunteers who have specific skills to share. Our guests also meet with counselors to learn healthy coping mechanisms as they overcome the trauma they have experienced.

 

At the core of this program is faith. Daily devotions, prayer time, and Scripture-oriented class curriculum all contribute to the growing faiths of our residents. Graduates of the program can continue residing at Toby’s Place for 12 months after they graduate, giving them a stable place to save money and find full-time employment before moving to permanent housing.
