Wesley Inn is a two-year housing program for up to 12 young, homeless mothers (ages 14-20) and their children (ages 0-5).

Residents at Wesley Inn are connected with a case manager who works with them throughout the entire duration of the program and assists in developing behavioral and educational goals.
