For 40 years The Women's Shelter has provided an environment for homeless women in crisis that fosters recovery, rehabilitation, personal responsibility, respect, growth, and change. During the residents' 90 days in the Primary Shelter they gain stability, maintain employment, and learn life skills. Residents successfully completing the Primary Shelter Program can enter into the Transitional Housing Program. This program lasts for up to two years and allows the residents to address long-term issues such as career goals, reuniting with family, working through financial or legal problems, and locating permanent housing.
The money raised through Midlands Gives will assist us in providing food, shelter, and life-skills programs for approximately 60 women per year.
