In 2021, Rachel’s Women’s Center served 835 unique women, while Rachel’s Night Shelter was only able to serve 138 unique women. The gap leaves hundreds of women on the street each night.
Catholic Charities is speaking with the City of San Diego to expand our capacity by opening a new, additional women’s shelter downtown, called Rachel’s Promise. It is not just a matter of getting more beds. It is a means to get more women into our program and, eventually, their own permanent housing.
Had Michelle not gotten a spot at Rachel’s Night Shelter, she might not be one of our success stories today. Read Michelle’s story, hear about her experience, and donate now to support Rachel’s Promise.
