Founded by Jameel Bryant in 2013, with funding from private donors and local supporters, Kearah's Place was born as a small group of individuals providing information, referrals, and guidance to women in crisis.
Kearah's Place programs and services help women make permanent life changes. Since our founding in 2013, Kearah's Place has transformed the lives of homeless and low-income women by providing safe, affordable and supportive community housing and educational resources to empower each woman to become financially independently, regardless of her circumstances.'
Kearah's serves women in transition in the community with classes on technology, life skills and job readiness, community referrals, an open computer lab and free clothing boutique.
