Our Mission

Transitions works to end poverty and homelessness for women and children in Spokane. We pursue this mission through the operation of Women’s Hearth, Transitional Living Center, EduCare, Miryam’s House, New Leaf, and Home Yard Cottages.

We operate six programs designed to support our community by providing childcare, housing, job training, and friendly, safe spaces for women and children to visit.


The emphasis of all services at Transitions is to work to end poverty and homelessness for women and children in Spokane. 


Program wide, Transitions offers 49 housing units for formerly homeless individuals and families. All of Transitions’ housing is available on a referral basis only.

“This place is safe for me, quiet. I can work on goals. My trauma level is going down, my anxiety level is going down. I feel safe. I didn’t have friends, family, or support. Now I have all that.”
