Westgate is a low-cost, low-barrier housing program for individuals in the Tallahassee community.

Our primary focus is providing residents with housing and access to services that foster continued growth.

Our Program

Westgate is a housing community for individuals in Tallahassee built to offer help and hope by creating solutions that provide a path to self-sufficiency to those in poverty.

Working in tandem with partnering agencies, Westgate is a program focused on creating a space that residents can call home and gain access to resources needed.

We view Westgate as an opportunity for individuals to continue their growth towards full independence in a responsible way. We are the stepping stone to something better.


Four housing options provide Westgate residents with the best housing option to fit their budget while allowing for continued growth and independence.
