On April 23rd, 1999, the Silver City Gospel Mission purchased a building next to the Mission from Mr. Arthur L. Sierra.
Mr. Sierra deducted a generous amount from the purchase price because one of his family members had been helped by the Mission and in return, we named our new women and children’s shelter ‘The Sierra House’ in his memory.
This house, located at 110 S. Bullard St, is 1200 SqFt with three bedrooms, a living room, kitchen, laundry room, and a bathroom. One bedroom, is reserved for the Sierra House Manager and the other two contain bunk-beds suitable for two families or four individuals.
Per bequest, our objective is to house, feed, and provide work skill programs and counseling which will help to integrate single women with or without young children back into the community for up to a period of twelve months.
Space may also available on a temporary basis to house women for a day or two, providing they are not considered a safety risk to any permanent residents of the home. Doors open for the temporary shelter at 5 pm and are locked at 7:30 pm.
Please call (575) 388-5072 and talk to the Sierra House Manager to check on space, more information or to schedule an appointment to fill out an application for long-term residency.
The Sierra House is a ZERO TOLERANCE FACILITY: This means absolutely no DRUGS, ALCOHOL OR MEN Search of the facility and belongings can and will be conducted at any time that management suspects a violation of any rule.
