Burckle Place III
Burckle Place III is The Lord’s Place’s fourth supportive housing facility for women.
The program will house 21 women experiencing homelessness starting in the Fall of 2023. The site will offer an intergenerational cohousing model that seeks to address the rise in senior homelessness by prioritizing 50 percent of units to women ages 55 and over. With this site soon opening its doors, Burckle Campus, consisting of Burckle Place, Burckle Place West and Burckle Place III, will serve approximately 75 women a year.
Burckle Campus is specially designed to help women heal from their past trauma and obtain new skills and resources to regain self-sufficiency.
It provides comprehensive services, including case management, peer support, benefits navigation, basic needs assistance (food, clothing, and hygiene items), as well as access to counseling, job training and placement, life skills development, ABE/GED tutoring, and health care and coordination.
In addition, residents are introduced to new activities and interests to promote their health and well-being. These activities include on-site yoga sessions, meditation, art lessons, and self-defense workshops. The Women’s Supportive Housing Initiative’s philosophy is centered on the principle that the best environment to foster growth and empowerment is one rooted in community, fellowship, and service.
