Our Mission: to build communities with underserved women and children where they  
are safely and supportively housed, free from homelessness and domestic violence.  

We’re Number One!


On June 12, our Midway Shelter was honored by Alameda County as its highest achieving shelter program for 2013! The award reflects Midway’s outcomes in terms of shelter clients exiting the shelter for permanent housing, as compared to the county’s other 14 shelters.

Midway’s co-founder, Ginny Krutilek (pictured at center) was on hand to accept the award. Our San Leandro Shelter, Bessie Coleman Court, and Rapid Rehousing Program were also recognized for outstanding outcomes. We are proud of our dedicated staff and our clients’
many successes!


It’s Our Village—Let’s Make it Better.

"You know how they say, 'It takes a village?' Well, this is my way of being a village member. It isn't about doing for just me and mine. It's about helping
my village."
~Ebani Pontiflet,
Children's Program volunteer
