The women who walk into Sophia’s Place have different needs: some need a safe place to stay or an address to use while job hunting; some need help to complete applications for a housing subsidy; some need to be connected with health services, counseling, or legal assistance. They are supported by compassionate and caring staff and case managers.
Women can take a shower, do laundry, use computers and phones, and have breakfast and a hot lunch. They also benefit from referrals and service providers including access to medical and mental health resources.
Sophia’s Place houses our six-month shelter that provides 21 women with semi-private cubicles furnished with raised beds and individual lockers. They have access to all the Day Center facilities.
This is a rotating shelter, hosted by churches on the Eastside. The women have a warm, safe place to sleep and are given a mat and a blanket, and served dinner and breakfast.
Holly House is our transitional house that provides housing for six women, who live in community with one another.
Case managers focus on the needs of each woman, guiding and supporting them to reach their desired goal.
