In 1998, a group of women in the Taos community came together and decided to do something to help young adults who did not have the skills and resources to live on their own, particularly youth exiting treatment and foster care.
Two years later, with building renovations completed, the program opened its doors to youth as a transitional living program. In 2004, 5 apartments were added - the Casitas - for greater independence for youth. In 2011, the main building opened as an emergency shelter.
