The mission of Camille’s House is to provide a rigorous program to prevent homelessness for single young mothers and to ensure a safe and nurturing environment for young adult women; specifically new mothers by providing an independent care group living experience. Camille’s house will assist young adult mothers with establishing a strong foundation in parenting, support, relationships, employment, and life-skills. The goal of Camille’s House is to provide an 18-24 month stay for working new mothers. The staff will help young women navigate through life’s obstacles as well as assist clients in becoming nurturing parents and establishling a road to self-sufficiency.
Camille's House is a transitional living space for single mothers that would otherwise become homeless. Here we will establish a goal matrix for each client in order to assist them in their journey to self-sufficiency. Camille’s House will assist each mother in finding solutions to the difficulties they face, as well as help prepare them to become self-sufficient adults in today’s society.

Winifred is a strong advocate for empowering others with the skills and tools needed to sustain themselves. Growing up in a single-parent household, Winifred witnessed firsthand the challenges of being a single parent and recognizes that being the source for all of the daily needs can be an overwhelming reality. Compounded with being young and/or alone, the sitution can seem hopeless.
Single moms are one of the most disadvantaged groups in the U.S.—nearly 30% of their families live under the poverty line. Additionally, the percentage of households led by a single mother with children under age 18 living in the household in North Carolina in 2017 was 8.48%. Winifred is a product of a single-parent household that did not become a part of the statistics. Through her life experiences, she learned that with a solid foundation of life skills and building a support network, young adult mothers can become nurturing parents and self-supporting. With that in mind, Winifred established Camille’s House
