For many Tucson women experiencing homelessness Sister Jose Women’s Center (SJWC) is their only safe haven and the first step to recovery from homelessness. We are a Tucson-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 2009. Our low-barrier day center provides unaccompanied homeless women with a stable and safe environment to recuperate from the daily struggle of homelessness and extreme poverty. The Winter Night Program provides overnight stays for women who would otherwise be sleeping outside; we provided 1562 overnights last winter. All of this was accomplished through the dedication and hard work of volunteers and university interns – they are the heartbeat of SJWC. We are more than a center; we are a community built upon the values of compassion, dignity and respect in a non-institutionalized setting. For many of our guests we are home.
Our Impact Each Month
* A big thank you to Caridad Community Kitchen for partnering with us to provide daily lunches for our guests.
