It’s surprising how quickly a woman can become unhoused. Kaylee’s mom went from living with family, to being asked to leave their home, to the severe challenge of being alone on the street in just a few short weeks. Your gift today will provide nutritious meals, clean clothes, and safe spaces for women just like Kaylee’s mom and their pets. Thank you.

Sister José Women’s Center is dedicated to the care and nurture of women experiencing homelessness in a welcoming environment. We provide our guests access to showers and laundry, meals, clothing and a supportive community so they can create a self-sufficient life and move out of homelessness.
Dear Friends: Our community faces an unprecedented challenge with COVID-19, which has created a situation that continues to evolve rapidly. Sister José Women’s Center remains steadfast to our mission, which is dedicated to the care and nurture of women experiencing homelessness in a welcoming and safe environment. We will continue to operate following all hygiene and “social distance” protocols as recommended by the CDC. Many of our core volunteers are older adults who represent a vulnerable population and we are asking them to follow the health and safety recommendations specific to their demographic. As a result, our volunteers who exceed more than 250 people strong has experienced a precipitous drop and we are struggling to fill those vacancies.
For those who would like to help, we will gratefully accept donations toward the added costs of extra staffing, food, health and hygiene supplies. We are grateful to walk side-by-side with our strong community partners and generous donors. Working together, we can weather this storm. We wish you good health!
Jean Fedigan Founder/CEO
For many Tucson women experiencing homelessness Sister José Women’s Center 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 dedicated to the care and nurture of women experiencing homelessness in a welcoming and safe environment. Our low-barrier day center provides unaccompanied 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 our organization. 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.
