It's cold out there. The Coldest Night of the Year is a covid-safe, family-friendly walk to raise money for charities serving people experiencing homelessness, hurt, and hunger. Walk with us virtually or in-person on February 20, 2021 – there’s a place for everyone!
AWAC- Association Advocating for Women and Community is a non-profit organization that opened in 1994, with the vision to provide safe and supportive shelter for street-involved women and female youth. Over the years we began to see the need for our services to expand. With the rate of homelessness increasing in our community we created the Housing First, Outreach, Housing Readiness and Olive's Branch transitional housing program. Our shelter is now open to men during the day, and all programs apart from Housing Readiness is open to all genders. All of our programs at AWAC provide clients with the opportunity to rebuild their lives through support from a non-judgmental, trauma informed approach. It is our goal to help move both men and women from homelessness to independent living by offering various levels of supports throughout the different stages of housing.
