Hope Women’s Center
Hope Women’s Center has been serving women and teen girls in Arizona’s underserved communities for over 35 years. They have staff and volunteers that are trained in trauma-informed care techniques, helping build trusting relationships with their clients, and allowing each client to feel understood. Hope offers five locations situated across Arizona in underserved communities where populations are most vulnerable to the widespread effects of poverty, trauma, and family dysfunction. In 2018, the five centers served 1,600 women and 300 children.
All of Hope’s programs are free and include life skills education, mentoring, support groups, pregnancy testing and support, free childcare while moms attend, a program for birth moms with kids in the foster care system, and community resource referrals. Hope Women’s Center offers programs that help to meet the emotional, relational, and spiritual needs of their clients. Participation in the programs accrues points for material resources or utility assistance, addressing the physical needs of their clients as well.
Hope Women’s Center always needs volunteers to serve as teachers, or in our boutique, kitchen, and at our front desk. “We also need bilingual mentors and teachers! Since poverty and food instability are two of the areas our clients struggle with most, we always need canned food, protein, and toiletries.” Please go tour one of the five centers and see how you can get involved!
