Spring Progress and Events

Spring Events

Talent Show

Women took time this spring to share their gifts with each other in a talent show. The much anticipated afternoon featured singing, dancing, poetry, comedy, and a winning harmonica performance. The show was a confidence booster to performers and empowered women to cultivate their personal strengths despite their housing status.

5K Walk

Several clients also participated in a 5K walk held Saturday June 11th.  The walk was a fundraiser for the agency, but was also an opportunity for clients and community members to interact and exercise together.   

Housing Placements

Since January, the housing coordinator has placed 27 women in permanent housing and 53 women accomplished goals on their service plans.
