Project Description

Calvary Women’s Services empowers homeless women in Washington, DC’s Wards 7 and 8 to transform their lives through housing, health, education, and employment. Calvary’s programs are designed for women who are survivors of violence and trauma, living with mental illness, or in recovery from substance addiction. Through personalized services and with peer support, each woman identifies and builds on her own strengths in order to meet her goals for safe housing, good health, and financial independence. Of the women who complete Calvary programs, 70% successfully end their homelessness.
