"Maryhouse is a daytime hospitality shelter for homeless women and children. Women come to us in crisis; some receive short-term help while others might require help for a longer period of time."
This past year, 1,584 women and 978 children received services at Maryhouse.
The Women’s Wisdom Project was designed as an empowerment program, for women overcoming poverty, homelessness, violence and abuse through the power of art.

Program Manager Helen Plenert's wish for 2015 is to be able to offer more jewelry making classes. The beads and findings are the most expensive of all our art supplies. Currently we were only able to offer 2 classes in the past year. To help -consider giving a gift of beautiful beads, or the jewelry tools and findings needed to create wearable pieces that the women could in turn sell at art events. Broken Jewelry can be repurposed into amazing new pieces.
