Welcome!

We’re starting this blog to keep you—the volunteer, donor or casual non-profit blog surfer—in the loop about Calvary Women’s Services.

If you don’t know already, Calvary is a non-profit organization in Washington, DC, that provides housing and support services to homeless women. A lot goes on at our three housing programs.  We offer a wide range of services–from nutritious meals to mental health services to skills-building classes– to help women address the reasons they became homeless.  Each year 60% of the women who come to Calvary move into their own homes.

On this blog, we’ll post news and updates about our programs.  We’ll also share some of the women’s stories.  In addition, we hope this blog will create a dialogue about some of the issues that women at Calvary’s programs face, such as homelessness, domestic violence, mental illness and substance addiction.

In fact, we were so eager to share program news with you, that Kris Thompson, Calvary’s executive director, posted a note last week before we even officially launched.

Our blog is meant to start conversations both online and off.  We welcome you to join in by commenting or getting in touch with us.  If you’re really excited about getting involved with this blog, email information@calvaryservices.org to find out how you can become a media volunteer.

Check back every Tuesday for a new post and every Friday for a weekly round-up of news that relates to women at Calvary and the support services we offer.  Thanks for joining us, and welcome to Calvary Comments!
