Hilliard House

Since 2001!

The Hilliard House was established in 2001. It was first a 30 bed facility in eastern Henrico County for women who have children up to the age of 18. Some families stayed for as long as a year in the shelter. The Hilliard House provided transitional housing.

        The Hilliard house was to help the needs of women with children that did not have a home. They had a mission to help women with their depression and to live productively on their own.

A resident Carolyn Peart learned, from her parents that there are some many ways you can help people in need of help.
