Calvary Women's Services offers housing, health, education, and employment programs that empower homeless women in Washington, DC, to transform their lives. Calvary is committed to providing these services in Anacostia, a neighborhood with the highest poverty rate in the District. Our programs are designed for women who are survivors of violence and trauma, are living with mental illness, or are in recovery from substance abuse. Through personalized services and with peer support, each woman identifies and builds on her own strengths in order to meet her goals for safe housing, good health, and financial independence. With more than thirty years' experience, we know our model works: every five days, a woman moves from Calvary into her own home with the skills and confidence she needs to succeed.
