There are over 450 women living on the streets in Marion County at any given time. These women are subject to increased risk of assault, rape and robbery every day.
We're working to change that. With the support of our community partner, Inside Out Ministries, we're launching a new overnight shelter for women.
SafeSleep is a community solution to an ever-growing problem. We are providing a safe, warm, secure place for women to sleep, eat and have access to wrap around supports that increase their chances of rebuilding their lives.
We need your help to make it happen as soon as possible. The longer we wait, the more women on the streets will suffer needlessly.
