About Us
Calvary Women’s Services offers housing, health, employment and education programs that empower homeless women in Washington, DC to change their lives.

Our programs carry out our mission to achieve excellence in what we offer: a safe, caring place for tonight; support, hope and change for tomorrow. These programs include transitional and permanent housing, personalized case management, life skills and education opportunities, job training, health and wellness services, on-site therapy and daily addiction recovery meetings. At Calvary, we believe every woman has the strengths and gifts she needs to be successful. Each woman in our programs identifies and builds on her strengths, meeting her goals for safe housing, good health and financial independence.
