Welcome to H.I.S. House!


H.I.S. House transitional shelter was founded in 1989 by Placentia Presbyterian Church. Since its inception, H.I.S. House has been home to over 2000 families, singles and children.


Once a three bedroom two bath farmhouse, H.I.S. House has undergone two major expansion remodels and now consists of 13 guest rooms, five restrooms, library, two kitchens, two family rooms, a living room and resident manager quarters. Each family lives in a private guest room, singles share a room with another single. During the four to six month program adults secure employment and save money for permanent housing.

H.I.S. House would not exist without the contributions of time, talent and money from many individuals, congregations, organizations, businesses and government entities from our local community and beyond.


Become a volunteer, mentor or contribute goods as well as your services at our very own thrift shop “Charity’s Closet.”
