Programs: Calvary Women's Shelter is a transitional housing program for 25 women. The primary goal of the program is to assist women in moving out of homelessness and into stable housing. It is also a goal that all women will take positive steps toward independence including beginning recovery from addiction, addressing their mental and physical health needs, healing from trauma and violence they have experienced and securing income through employment or benefits.

Among homeless women the place has a reputation; when you''re ready to turn your life around, go to Calvary. Each year, 150 women do just that, and find, as the staff likes to say, "a safe, caring place for tonight; support, hope and change for tomorrow." Of the 10,000 homeless people in DC, most are women and children, many of whom struggle with mental illness, domestic violence, substance abuse and chronic diseases. Calvary ensures that these women have both housing and comprehensive support services. Tonight, as it has for over 25 years, Calvary will provide a safe place for DC''s homeless women and the care and support to help them live a more positive tomorrow.
