Holiday Gifting

It is the season of Joy!

It is the season of Giving!

The Holiday Season is the time to celebrate with family and friends, and spread good cheer in your community.

At The Sophia Way, we make it a special season for the women in our programs – at our Day Center, Sophia’s Place, Holly House and those who have moved into their own home. Decorating the shelters with holly and trimmings is just one part of raising their spirits. A bigger effort goes into creating a gift bag for every woman and their happiness as they receive it is our joy!

Every year we ask you to open your hearts and bring a smile to the woman with your thoughtful gifts. Please see their wish list below.

And if you are unable to give gifts, please donate and help more women move into housing.
