Check out our up-to-date wish list for current needs that will help women feel more at home at Calvary.
Last year, Calvary served over 135 women.
More than 70% of women who complete our programs move into their own home.
Our programs are designed for women who are survivors of violence and trauma, are living with mental illness, or are in recovery from substance abuse. 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.
On any given day, 882 unaccompanied women are experiencing homelessness in the District of Columbia.
After years of struggling with alcohol and substance abuse, Verlette decided it was time to make a change. She had always relied on her family as a safety net, but when her father passed away she knew the moment had come to tackle her difficult personal issues head on. That’s when she came to Calvary Women’s Services.
We support women as they use their own strengths and skills to reach their goals. Women here form a community of support – a sisterhood – that fosters an environment where everyone can reach their highest potential. Each woman who comes through our doors has unique needs. With the right services and encouragement, they are empowered to transform their own lives.
Make a difference in the lives of women who are working to overcome homelessness.
