Adaptt Rochester, Inc.

Building up women and children to empower themselves to achieve their beautiful, unique, and unlimited purpose.



            Co-Founders Tamara Howard and Angela Wollschlager began their careers in human services, hoping to help make real change. Their experiences showed them all of the barriers and broken systems in place that prevented change from taking place. One thing they noticed - time is ever-changing, and so are people. In order to ensure that change is effective, they learned how important it is to have the ability to ADAPTT to the evolving needs of the community and its people.


            At ADAPTT, Tamara and Angela teamed with a powerful board of women who have lived experience, professionals who have worked in Human and Social Services fields and others who have held key positions, and are working together to create a revolutionary model of transitional living. Their plan is to give homeless and at-risk women and children the support, guidance, and love that will empower them to achieve their own beautiful, unique, unlimited purpose.
