Rachael’s Women’s Center Closing

Rachael’s Women’s Center has been providing support services to homeless and formerly homeless women since 1979. Over the past 35 years, Rachael’s has been a safe haven for thousands of women. Our mission, to provide hope and hospitality to women experiencing homelessness, is driven in large part by private donations and grants. Over recent years, funding for our day center has steadily decreased. After much discussion and contemplation, the Board of Directors have made a very difficult decision. It is with great sadness in our hearts that we announce the closing of Rachael’s Women’s Center. Our last day of operation will be Tuesday, September 30, 2014. This closure includes the Street Outreach program for men.
