Sherylon is a Proud Member of Partners for Tomorrow
For Sherylon, Calvary Women's Services means, "a way out, a way up... a life better than I ever dreamed." Watch our latest video to hear more of Sherylon's reflections on the impact Calvary has had on her life and why she now chooses to give back as a member of Partners for Tomorrow.

Partners for Tomorrow members are a dedicated group of donors who are committed to supporting the women at Calvary Women’s Services every single month. These generous partners give anywhere from $10 to $500 a month, and every donation makes an incredible difference.

Monthly donations are critical to the success of the organization and will help us support more women in our community. You can join Sherylon and others to help make this possible by becoming a Partner for Tomorrow.

Volunteer Spotlight: Summer Interns
After over a year of being unable to welcome in-person volunteers, Calvary Women's Services welcomed three college and graduate student interns this summer. They connected directly with the women at Calvary as they supported programs across the organization.

Eden joined us as part of a program called “CU in DC” with Colorado University and supported Calvary’s Step UP DC program, working with women to update their resumes and prepare for job interviews. Haleima is a student at Trinity Washington University here in Washington, DC, her interest in mental health fueled her work with Calvary’s therapist. Selina is a graduate student in Howard University’s Occupational Therapy program. She is currently a second-year student in the master’s program and was recently accepted into the doctoral program. Selina's Occupational Therapy programming has included a focus on personal health, with activities like Zumba and nutrition education, and financial well-being.
