Calvary’s new housing program, Sisters Rise, will provide 25 additional permanent supportive housing units for women fleeing domestic violence. Sisters Rise, is vitally important right now. During a time filled with so many questions and concerns, Calvary will be able to provide stability, certainty, and safety to more women than ever before. Including Sisters Rise, we will now serve at least 250 women a year.
Accompanying this growth, we will also expand our comprehensive, trauma-informed, and personalized support services, like our employment and mental health programs, to continue meeting the needs of women served by Calvary.
Before the pandemic, Calvary grew its capacity by 80% and now, less than 2 years later, we are growing again and expanding by another 50% in the 2021-22 program year.
