The Women’s Center is a multi-service resource center for homeless women, located near downtown Raleigh, NC. Our mission is to prevent and end homelessness for women in The Triangle Area. Through tireless engagement and outreach, we serve a range of women, from those who are chronically homeless to those who are medically fragile, those who struggle with behavioral and mental challenges, displaced veterans, and so many more.
The Women’s Center has been an established and welcoming portal of entry for homeless women for over 25 years. We provide a safe, low barrier, client-centered and trauma sensitive environment for homeless women, where they can begin the stabilizing process and transition toward their goal of permanent housing.
The Women’s Center is the only drop-in day shelter for women in Wake County, serving 35-50 women per day year round. Homeless women staying in local Emergency Overnight Shelters must vacate each morning and may not return until late afternoon. The Women’s Center provides safe day shelter, as well as trauma informed care and critical, life-saving services, such as medical and behavioral health care, case management, food, clothing, hygiene items, housing support services, and support acquiring vital documents and accessing local resources.
The Women’s Center welcomes all women experiencing homelessness and does not discriminate based on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, gender expression, physical appearance, language, education, age, national, origin, disability, marital status, veteran status in any of its activities or operations.
