As we celebrate 10 years of serving and supporting women experiencing homelessness, we'd like to share a few voices of those we serve. We thank our community of donors and volunteers for making this possible!
“Living at Sophia’s Place has given me six months of refuge; long enough to focus on other matters, to make things happen and not worry about where to store my belongings. Knowing that I can have the same safe place and same safe bed each night is huge!”
“The staff are very helpful and attentive. I get access to good food, personal hygiene items. To be able to take a shower/cleanup each day is wonderful.”
“I was overjoyed to finally have a place I could call my very own. I cried tears of relief and joy. I am so grateful to all who put my apartment together with furnishings and all the wonderful items that make it a beautiful place for me to love.”
"A BIG Thank You!! I am so happy in my new place. All of this could not have been done without you. It means more than you know."
“I became homeless when I lost my job and couldn’t renew my lease. I had no family, and nowhere to go. When I came to The Sophia Way I was happy, grateful, and relieved at the same time because Daisy (my dog) and I had a warm place to sleep at night and food to eat. We had beds and showers. We had what we needed to survive.”
“My case manager gave me the confidence to believe in myself.”
"I have one place that I know is my "home" and where I can sleep at night. I am connected and part of a very special community of women where we are safe and supported."
"I'm happy to get a fresh start and out of the cold and on my way to becoming home owner again."
"Having a private living, sleeping, resting space. I appreciate the staff handling "taxing" situations. I don’t feel like a number anymore. Kudos to you all!
"I love having an actual bed that nobody else sleeps in during my stay here."
