Challenge

Women at Sarah's Circle may face multiple challenges in their lives that inhibit them from overcoming poverty and/or homelessness. These challenges include domestic violence, mental illness, physical disabilities and substance abuse. Making matters worse, there is a lack of government-funded health services in our area, as well as a lack of agencies serving the homeless.

Solution

Sarah's Circle is the only agency in our area that provides comprehensive services - i.e. food, toiletries, hygiene, clothing, computers, personalized case management, health services and housing - that cater specifically to women who are homeless.

Long-Term Impact

By providing housing assistance, personalized case management, health services, and life necessities, we encourage women to empower themselves by rebuilding both emotionally and physically, and ultimately realizing their unique potential.
