Mission Statement

Almost Home, Inc's mission is to promote self-sufficiency and provide assistance to those experiencing housing instability.

Organization History

Almost Home, Inc. grew out of a community effort to house the homeless in the greater Brighton area. From 1986 to 1992 a homeless shelter operated in the basement of St. Augustine's Catholic Church in Brighton. Every night for those 6 years members from local churches brought food and volunteered for related duties. In 1992 that original shelter closed. In 1993, through community and church collaboration a newly incorporated Almost Home, Inc. began operating in a small house owned by the Episcopal Church. We relocated to our 14-bed shelter space in 1998. Since that time, we have been providing services as a private, non religious, 501 (C) 3 corporation. In mid 2003 we moved to our new 4,300 square feet Office/Community Center at Hughes Station.


"I was on my way home from work at 1:00 am when I was brutally attacked by a stranger outside my apartment. I was left for dead. My recovery was long and I needed a lot of help. I lost my job and eventually, my apartment…the only home my sons and I knew. We then moved into motels, but I quickly ran out of money and we found ourselves homeless. I was desperate. We had nowhere to go. Thankfully, I found shelter at Almost Home. I don't know where I'd be without Almost Home. We stayed in the shelter for two months, then I was back to work and saved enough money for an apartment. Finally, I felt like we were going to be ok." -Bennette, Almost Home Client
