What to Expect as a Client

All self-identified women who meet our program eligibility requirements are accepted regardless of ethnicity, religion, sexual identity or background.  Women assessed to be at exceptional situational risk are prioritized.  Women receive non-judgmental support, guidance and advocacy from a team of dedicated Staff, with the highest professional regard for ethics, confidentiality and women's individual journeys to empowerment.

Women in our programs live in a home-like, residential environment with a group of their peers. Women share communal living responsibilities, learn life-skills, and are encouraged to support and learn from and with one another. 

Women commit to Program Guidelines and individual responsibility to follow through with their self-identified goals.  Women who follow through with this commitment can choose to remain in our programs for up to 18 months, or longer should needs warrant.
