1 in 4 homeless individuals is an unaccompanied woman. That’s 25 percent of the homeless population! This is a population that is severely under-served and overlooked nationally and locally.
WISEPlace, a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization, is a community of housing and hope for women in crisis. Formerly the South Orange County YWCA, WISEPlace has a 90-year history of caring for the community. By meeting basic needs such as housing, clothing, physical and emotional nourishment, as well as vocational and life skills training, the WISEPlace Hotel for Women is one of the few places unaccompanied homeless women can go to begin again.
WISEPlace transforms the lives of over 300 women each year, by providing safe, affordable transitional housing, healthy meals, financial-empowerment curriculum and employment assistance, to help women move from homelessness and hopelessness to self-reliance. Case managers provide personalized counseling to help each woman overcome issues that led to unemployment and homelessness.
