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. ​
  • We care for 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.
