“Don’t Give Up!”

Dear Friends,

During 2022, 128 women engaged at The Sophia Way found a place to call home! We are grateful for your compassion, kindness, and generosity that provided the resources to help each of these women navigate to stability.

The shelter team works together tirelessly with a focus on trauma-informed care to support women in different places on their journey to stable living. We meet clients where they are, help them identify goals, and address barriers to reaching those goals every day. Group activities like chair yoga, painting, and meditation help offer structure and support, and events like tea parties and brunches create community and camaraderie.

As a case manager shared: “I’ve learned that some things take multiple attempts to accomplish. I tell my clients — don’t give up; persist, and you’ll meet success.'”

In 2023, our focus is on ensuring stability – from our programs and services to organizational leadership and funding resources to continue to be a place of hope and change. We will be sharing more in our upcoming Coffee with the Executive Team on February 15 and look forward to responding to questions that you may have about our programs, services, and plans for the year. 

With a dedicated and compassionate community, we continue to provide the resources and all the supports women need to find a place to call home.

With gratitude,

Dietra Clayton, Managing Executive Director
Zee Peters, Executive Director, Development & Engagement
