Description

Ciara’s House Mission Statement

What:   A Transitional Home for Women released from a county jail in Kentucky

A faith-based home that will be available to these women provided they agree to the rules of the home or until the Director(s) agree that they are ready to live independently. 

Initially the goal will be to provide housing for three women with a maximum of eight.  

Each of the women must sign a contract drafted and maintained by the Director(s).

The living expenses will be covered by this budget until employment can be obtained by these women. Once employment is obtained each participant will be responsible for contributing a minimum expense to the operating expenses of the facility. Other facilities of this type expect the women to contribute $50 per week, possibly to be minimized based on income, and to be responsible for individual expenses, such as, food and other personal items. 

The goal will be for these women to obtain employment within two weeks of being released from jail with assistance from the Director(s).
