Calvary Women's Services

When women in Washington D.C. experience the traumatic and long-lasting effects of homelessness, Calvary Women’s Services empowers them to transform their lives through housing, health, and job placement assistance.

One of their programs, Step Up DC, offers one-on-one assistance to help participants build their resumes, acquire new skills, and gain financial security through stable employment. Since the program’s inception, Step Up DC participants have secured jobs in a range of fields, from IT support to hospitality.

Calvary Women’s Services will receive a $25,000 grant from the Aura Cacia Positive Change Project in 2023 to help Step Up DC transform the lives of 75 women in the Washington D.C. area.
