About Safe to Sleep
Safe to Sleep (STS) inspires hope for women experiencing homelessness by providing shelter and case management services, which help them overcome obstacles to sustainable housing.
Once the guest’s immediate need for shelter is met, the focus turns to transportation to and from appointments, connection with medical and mental health specialists, and document readiness for housing/employment — all with the goal of permanent housing. Safe to Sleep is the only local low-barrier “women’s” shelter available 365 days a year.
Since 2011, Safe to Sleep has provided a safe haven for more than 2,700 homeless women. In an atmosphere of dignity and compassion, women have safe shelter and support services to move them from scarcity to security.
