“Dear beautiful sister…don’t be afraid. Your life is about to get better.”

The most powerful conversations about homelessness happen when people who have actually experienced it get the chance to speak. That is evident in the video “Dear Beautiful Sister,” which features women at Calvary sharing their experiences, and offering words of hope to others.

Dear Beautiful Sister” premiered at the 13th Annual Hope Awards Dinner in May 2014 and continues to be one of the most-watched and loved videos that focuses on Calvary Women’s Services’ mission and the women we serve.
