The Matthews House is a 501(c)(3) organization that empowers young adults and families in transition to navigate difficulties on the road to self-sufficiency. Many of the individuals in our program are or have been part of the human services, foster care, and/or justice system. Many have also lived in generational poverty. They frequently do not have a significant support system nor the skills necessary for living independently, including retaining a job, solving problems, managing money, and building solid relationships.
