About Calvary

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.

Making a Difference

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.
