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.
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.
