  Christina's House
Did you know the fastest growing segments of the homeless population are families with children. Nationally one in 45 children are homeless and in Massachusetts the average age of a homeless child is only 8 years old. In the city of Springfield, there has been an increase of homeless families, and among them homeless women with children. Christina's House was placed on Linda Mumblo's heart by God, and she stepped out to do what seemed to be impossible; create transitional housing for women and children.

Christina's house was birthed with a vision to answer the cries of women with children in Springfield with a safe place called home, and is designed to provide transitional housing, but more importantly to offer emotional, spiritual, physical and educational support. Their goal is to provide a holistic approach that will help women and their children transition from homelessness to permanent, stable living environments.

To find out more about this critical local mission, visit their website below and you will discover more about their mission, vision, and plans. If you would like to schedule a tour of Christina's House, donate, adopt a room, or volunteer call Linda at the number below.
