From Homelessness to Independence

Confident Catrina!
Confident Catrina!

Since November 2015, 178 donors have raised over $67,800 for homeless and low-income women in Washington, DC. Thank you for your support!

People experience homelessness for all sorts of reasons; lack of affordable housing, medical emergencies, job loss, mental health concerns or the death of a loved one. Homeless in 2019, Catrina came to N Street Village through the Patricia Handy Place for Women - a shelter with 214 emergency and temporary therapeutic beds.


She had experienced "off and on homelessness, for over 10 years." She first became homless after "using became the only priority.” Catrina speaks of overcoming many challenges, including a debilitating injury in adolescence, substance use and related barriers, and the sudden loss of her son.


Despite her struggles, Catrina says that her challenges gave her the push to get the help that she needed.  Catrina later transitioned to Permanent Supportive Housing at Phyllis Wheatley (YWCA). Now, she maintains through, in her words, “prayer” and “The 12 Steps.” She says that being at N Street Village has helped her “rebuild relationships” with her children and has helped her “live independently.”
