Challenge

Washington, DC has one of the highest rates of homelessness in the United States. Women who are homeless face serious challenges, including domestic violence, physical and mental illnesses, addictions, and unemployment. Through Calvary Women's Services' Life Skills educational program, women who live at Calvary's three housing programs can access classes and support that help them overcome these challenges and empower them for independent living.

Solution

Life Skills offers a wide variety of classes and activities that help women build skills as they prepare to move out of homelessness. Topics include budgeting, stress management, cooking/nutrition, women's health, job interview prep and much more.

Long-Term Impact

150 women will participate in the program this year, building practical skills that will empower them for stronger, more stable futures.
