Environmental Works interviews Alisa Chatinsky

Environmental Works featured an interview with The Sophia Way CEO, Alisa Chatinsky in their June newsletter,

Environmental Works (EW) was one of the many organizations that partnered the building of Kirkland Place for Families & Women (completed in August 2020), which houses Helen’s Place and New Bethlehem Place.

Alisa Chatinsky spoke with EW about the unique circumstances of women experiencing homelessness, how The Sophia Way helps, and what the community can do to learn more and support their work.

Our whole team is trained in trauma-informed best practices that promote women’s healing and empowerment. Core to our work is building supportive relationships that continue to sustain our clients.”

The women also support each another. We had a resident with dementia who other women would assist with getting ready for the day – from dressing to eating. When a woman without a car needs to get to a doctor’s appointment, someone with a car will give her a ride. I am so proud of our community of staff and residents who care for one another!
