A new home for the ladies at GHH!!!

Grandma’s House has announced its third housing location (and 7th house!!) in Orange County. This new, 6 bedroom home offers 13 women the opportunity to experience love, hope and healing on their way to self-sufficiency. The property will also have its own computer lab and counseling space. The role of this home in our overall program structure is as a Pre-Graduate Home. The women that live here will have already stabilized in our transitional program and have secured jobs or are going to school full time to advance their educational goals. These women are able to live together with less supervision but will still be working the full program GHH offers, including case management, counseling, and workforce development. The ladies also volunteer out in the community as a condition of their enrollment. For more information, visit
