Lodi House began as a dream of many community leaders who were inspired by Annette Murdaca. At the time there were no services for homeless women and children in Lodi, only for men.
Through the financial support of community members, service groups, businesses, churches and The City Lodi House was able to opened its doors to its first client on September 11, 2000.
In 2011 Lodi House was able to expand its program with the purchase of a property that now provides three transitional apartments as well as a designated enrichment center for workshops and therapy office.
Lodi House has provided continuous care for thousands of women and children for over 17 years.
We exist to provide compassionate support, counseling and shelter to homeless women and children to empower them to live courageous, healthy and independent lives.
