All Among Us Women’s Center is a housing facility for women in recovery from substance abuse, domestic violence and instability, or other traumatic life events . Our innovative approach sets us apart from standard transitional housing, with a core program in place to ensure the long-term success of our residents. Our Women’s Care Center was created to provide a welcoming and safe home environment for women from all walks of life. We help support and transform women as they make the needed changes in their lives; away from the people, places, barriers, and stressors that keep them in poverty.
By physically and emotionally entering the Center and creating a new environment, surrounding oneself with a sisterhood of women all striving for long-term self-sufficiency and emotional health, women are able to take steps out of poverty and toward a life of meaning. It is the vision of All Among Us that the women who join our community through the Women’s Care Center will not just survive. Together we can thrive!
At AAU, what we call “transformational housing” extends beyond the confines of traditional homeless shelters for women. In fact, our role is very different from traditional homeless shelters or rehab facilities. While those organizations provide a needed, yet short term, service; at All Among Us we understand that the path through recovery is very rarely a straight line. Therefore, our program is focused on long term solutions for the women in our organization; as they navigate their way through life’s challenges.
Our program is not a “one-size-fits-all” solution, but rather a custom approach to the triggers and trauma that our women experience. Living together we learn individual lessons, through group support, to find ways to heal, to cope, and to move on toward healthier habits. This includes financial guidance, rehabilitation, housing, and other material necessities. Beyond that, however, we build a strong support system. One that is ALWAYS there for the women in our program, even beyond “graduating” from the program. We are a community, a resource, a family; and our doors are always open to the women in a program.
Women in our program, many of whom have been abused, are often in need of sanctuary. AAU is unique in that it has a long-term relationship with each resident to encourage their recovery.
Everyone who completes our program will feel confident in their ability to succeed in the real world because of the love, care, and dignity we provide. This goes beyond healing the physical injuries, and the emotional triggers. Our program helps empower women to create structural changes in their lives, and help them carry these lessons back to their communities. We believe that we can build a stronger society, together.
At All Among Us, we understand that there are many factors that help to perpetuate cycles of poverty and abuse. While we know that we cannot end homelessness, drug addiction, or abuse; our goal is to help each individual in their battle. We believe that we can fundamentally change communities, one woman at a time. Together, as a community, we can help tackle these issues by empowering women towards self-sufficiency. While each case is different, so is the time it takes to heal. Our programs offer women support based on their needs, from several months to many years.
To assure long-term success, our transformative shelter program focuses on seven pillars:
