Education

Calvary's life skills, education, and arts program (LEAP) is designed to address gaps that may exist in the education and life skills of the women we serve.

We believe providing quality education programs to women plays a huge role in fostering self-reliance and independence.

Our education programs take place each weekday afternoon and are offered on-site at Calvary. Classes typically last one hour, and women may choose two classes each day from the selection of three or four being offered. Class focus areas include financial literacy, arts & creative expression, health & wellness, and writing skills.

All sessions are led by dedicated and trained volunteers with skills and interests in each class area. By engaging women in skills-building activities, women are empowered with the tools they need to make lasting changes in their lives.

In the last year, Calvary offered over 700 hours of educational programs to women experiencing homelessness.
