Charity Spotlight: Calvary Women’s Services

Calvary began as a single emergency shelter in the basement of a church in 1983. Since then they have grown into an organization that offers housing and services to homeless women through three programs – Calvary Women’s Shelter, Sister Circle, and Pathways. Through these programs, Calvary carries out its mission to achieve excellence in what we offer – a safe, caring place for tonight; support, hope and change for tomorrow.

Women who come to Calvary find more than just a safe place to live and basic needs like nutritious meals. Calvary also provides women with  educational programs, employment opportunities, personal support from case managers, mental health services, addiction recovery support and much more. With a strong emphasis on resident involvement, collaboration with other agencies, and excellence in management, Calvary strives to provide the best possible services to women in need in our community.
