Robin’s Home provides a full continuum of care for homeless, unstably housed and low income female veterans and their children. Robin’s Home is located in Butler, PA but we serve women veterans in seven counties: Armstrong, Butler, Clarion, Lawrence, Mercer, Allegheny and Erie counties.
Robin’s Home is named after a women veteran who served in the Army and was deployed in support of Desert Storm. After discharge, Robin had been receiving treatment for sexual trauma and PostTraumatic Stress Disorder when she also required surgery for a medical condition. Unfortunately, due to complications from the surgery, Robin passed away January 27, 2017. In her honor, Robin’s Home provides supportive housing to women veterans and their children in need.
Currently located in Butler County, no other agency provides supportive housing to homeless women veterans and their children. Sadly, there is a growing need for women veterans who need housing stabilization and supportive services. Women Veterans are the fastest growing segment of the military and homeless population. Women Veterans are twice as likely to experience homelessness than non women veterans.
In addition to grants for funding, we rely on the generosity of local people and organizations who donate funds and items to support Robin’s Home. You can learn more about recent monetary funds [ here ] or about recent items given [ here ].
Robin’s Home is managed by a Board of Directors that support our ongoing efforts.
