Women and children are the fastest growing segment of the homeless population, with 85% of homeless families headed by single women.
Every night, we serve increasing numbers of women and children. All the beds are filled in our Center for Women & Children, but we almost always have more women and children than beds. Just to give everyone in need a place to sleep, we regularly put dozens of cots on our gym floor.
I've been here for 3 weeks now and Wheeler has helped me out with having a safe place to sleep, off the streets, and help getting myself together to move on with my life. They've helped me out a lot.
To meet the increased need for shelter, we’ve launched our BUILDING FOR CHANGE CAMPAIGN and need your help to make the next expanded center for women & children a reality!
