Give girls and women the gift of a better life!
If a youth girl may be at risk of homelessness because of experiencing one or more of a range of factors such as: mental illness, financial stress, foster care misplacement and or abuse, would you help provide them a better life?
HER-Homes: "Our youth are a precious gifts from God. As adults, we have the privilege and responsibility to care for them, pray for their protection and safety, and help them live the full and abundant life God desires for them. YES! WE WILL!
"What are the 3 main causes to homelessness?
#1. Mental Illness/Trauma. Mental illness is an issue that seems to be causing more problems in our society now than ever before. When it comes to our youth, they become solely dependable on the knowledge and wisdom passed down from their parents. If the structure of their foundation is broken , then more then likely the children will be lost without direction.
#2. Unemployment due to the lack of experiance. Unemployment and homelessness are always going to be linked together. Most youth that fall victim to this, are ones who did not finish school, without a trade or stability.
#3. Lack of Affordable Housing.
HER-Homes housing, is a unique program that girls and women can stabilize themselves to become prosperous, productive women inside and out. We will address needs that is the result of a mental illness, foster misplacement and stable living by bridging the gap from homelessness to permanent housing. Providing a structured curriculum, support in life skills, child care, education, and training for girls working to be structured and stable women. We will help our girls and women make a successful transition to self-sufficiency and sustainable living.
Our mission is to provide safe housing and supportive services in a safe community girls can use to transition from homelessness to permanent housing without many distractions. We’ve created a transitional housing program that will not only service our clients but one that best serves the needs of our community as well.
Fun Fact: In the 2020-2021 school year, more than 93,000 Texas youth were identified as homeless, and nearly 15% of those are without a parent or guardian. Housing instability can have significant effects on the lives of young people and compromise their ability to make a transition to a successful adulthood.
Her-Homes Therapy: Her Homes specializes in treating young women in a residential setting who struggle with a wide array of issues including trauma, loss, attachment, anxiety, depression, and the often-accompanying addictive patterns of behavior. These are highly complex problems and require very specialized approaches to initiate and complete the healing process.
Our 5 pillars of therapy: Compassion | Trust | Understanding | Problem driven | Spirituality
Goals from HER-Homes therapy:
>Building healthy relationships
>Heal from Trauma
The lack of affordable housing stems from all walks of walk. Her Homes Savings program is a system that girls will be able to complete the program with a significant amount of money to help begin their independent life. This will serve as their start-up funding for independent living. Before exiting the program, our participants will complete a full financial & budgeting class that will help them organize their goals. Her-homes financial coordinator will review their records every two weeks to ensure goals are being met.
DBF Diva dollar system was created to save and budget the essential needs in life. This will be available for our participants to purchase hygiene & clothing items and most lifestyle necessities that will be available in our Kloset Store. Participants will be able to obtain DIVA Dollars by volunteering, doing acts of kindness, and our point system. Each day participants are in the program as an incentive they will receive 5 daily divas dollars.
Her Homes Education: Participants may obtain their diploma, GED and or trade while in the program. 2 additional months will be added to their service plan to establish housing and employment stability. Her Homes housing community will have a computer lab and library that is quiet and made for focus and study. If the participants decide to go into a 4-year college and beyond, we will assist with college applications, FAFSA, College tours ETC. We will provide tutoring and assistance as well.

"Home is the starting place of love, hope and dreams. This is often ripped away from girls that may have faced tough adversities in life. The magic thing about home is that it feels good to leave, and it feels even better to come back. We will ensure a safe & structured environment for learning and healthy living. Home is where love resides, memories are created, friends always belong, and laughter never ends. Help us create this reality for the future of many. We understand a well built house is made of bricks and beams. With your support the bricks of Her-Homes will be laid with a foundation of faith, love, compassion and the spark of real change!" - Divas Build Futures Inc

Our Founder Ms. Asha Scott: Being a girl grieving my mothers death, I never knew how to properly heal. I myself faced many challeges with homelessness and mental health. Giving God all the honor for being blessed with such a vision!! Being in position to help many girls and young women thrive and become great people is humbling and very rewarding. Im so excited to build a community of girls growing into women who will be whole, prosperous and productive beings in our world. Engaging and educating them on all aspects of life skills, education, real estate, mental health, child care, career goals, health and wellness and stable housing. HER-Homes is a program that upon completion girls would obtained a substantial career path, permanent housing, savings, and a life long set of resources to grant them peace and good measures in life. Between the ages of 22-28 years old, I faced many adversities with homelessness, having stable employment, mental health and making many mistakes looking for answers to my problems in all the wrong places. I gave my life back to christ at 29 years old and God turn my life around for better. I founded Divas Build Futures Inc, to provide life skills, mentorship and to aid girls with the resources needed to conquer life's challenges, overcome them and win. Staying pillow to post, I knew it was time for me to make serious changes in my life and be obedient to what God have for me. It was programs like Divas Build Futures Inc & HER-Homes that saved my life. I am confident that many MANY more lives will be saved and changed because of this program. Her-Homes is an enrichment program that will bridge the gap and break many generational curses that have had holds on our youth's mental health, and have created poverty stricken lifestyles and tore down families. God is using me to educate our youth with my gifts, wisdom and life experiences by creating programs that will help our youth stay on the right track and become strong pillars in our community . HER Homes is not just a transitional housing community but a community where girls are going to: H.eal from adversities and life challenges. Be apart of an E.mpowering community building strong foundations and relationships.R.estoring & building lives with strong core values and queendom principles. Thank you for joining the journey, to many this may be an act of kindness but to many girls and women its a fresh start to a better life. Her-Homes will be a life changing opportunity of a lifetime.
