Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Sisters Helping Sisters Daytime Program

Provides safety, meals, clean bathrooms and rest for up to 120 women daily. The weekly schedule includes on-site visits from complimentary agencies, classes, support groups and personal services. Women heal by drawing on the shared experiences and strengths of women. They are empowered by watching the success of others who move forward to housing and income stability.

Population(s) Served
Women and girls
Adults

Each night our program offers 36 women a hot home-cooked meal and a safe space to sleep. We provide over 13,000 safe overnights each year to homeless women who would otherwise sleep outdoors. Volunteers cook and spend the night supervising the program, donating over 840 hours each month. Safety and support from staff, volunteers, and each other help women come to believe in their own value as unique human beings who can take the next step forward out of homelessness. SJWC offers women an extended stay in the overnight program so they have the stability from which to do the hard work of moving to a self-sufficient life.
