What it is:
The purpose of WHI is to provide overnight sanctuary for 20–25 women who are homeless, every night, year round. We offer our women dignity, care, compassion, presence and respect. This effort is facilitated by Capitol Hill United Ministries and 30 congregations and organizations to serve our women in need, to educate our community, and to advocate to find more solutions.
How you can help:
- Prepare and serve food
- Volunteer at a site overnight
- Set up/take down rooms
- Take care of laundry
- Help raise money
- Work with the director, Diana Flahive, on a variety of programs
The Trinity Connection:
Many of the visitors we have during the week and at the lunch program are homeless women. While Trinity is not a hosting site, we have volunteers that help at various other locations.
