Since it was first conceived in 1996 and then incorporated as a nonprofit in 2002 as an emergency shelter for women, the non-sectarian center has housed and fed thousands of women and families – and set them on a path. Through intensive counseling and innovative approaches such as the Women’s Independence Program, lives are transformed.
The whole month of April will be dedicated to raising awareness and funds to empower women and families, to overcome their situation of homelessness.
In any given year, that’s how many women and families in a housing crisis are served by the Cathedral Center. They face life on the street, or worse – a violent environment – if it were not for the emergency shelter at 845 N. Van Buren St.
