Opened in May, 2017, Clare of Assisi House is the first facility in Berks County, Pennsylvania dedicated to the successful re-entry of women ex-offenders and the only one providing long-term transitional housing. Mary’s Pence is helping to fund their Steps to Success program focused on helping residents develop skills necessary to find and keep living wage employment. The Steps to Success program is one aspect of the intensive life skills training program provided at Clare of Assisi House. Each resident is supported in her attempt to seek self-sufficiency and independent living in the greater community as part of the comprehensive, sustainable programming that Clare of Assisi House offers.
