The mission of Leslie’s House is to provide a safe haven for homeless women (ages 18 and older without dependents). We provide respite and encouragement towards good choices which aid the women in creating a positive and self-sufficient life.
Leslie’s House was born out of concern for single homeless women in the High Point community. Prior to the construction of Leslie’s House, there were few safe places for homeless women to stay in Guilford County. Concerned citizens worked together to raise necessary funds to build a beautiful home for women in need of shelter.
Today, Leslie’s House offers 22 emergency shelter beds, hot meals, toiletries, case management, Life Skills classes and most importantly, hope. Residents have a safe place to stay while stabilizing their lives and making plans for the future.
Residents meet regularly with the Leslie’s House Case Manager to determine their personalized plan of action. The Case Manager makes residents aware of resources and aids them in navigating the path towards permanent housing with goal setting and completion.
Monday – Sunday: Closes at 9:00 am and reopens for residents at 1:00 pm. New Resident Intakes begin at 6:00 pm. A day room is available in the West End Community Center building, 8:30 am – 6:00 pm Tuesdays and Thursdays (exceptions may be made during weather emergencies or other challenges).
