Our awesome project is an on-going weekly opportunity to reach out to the homeless, addicted women of the street of the City of Poughkeepsie. Every single Saturday Night throughout the year we arrive at the corner of Main St and So Clinton St to serve the immediate needs of these women by offering a kind heart, an open mind and listening ears: we also provide bottled water, high-protein, high-calorie foods and snacks to eat on site and/or take along, personal hygiene items and weather-appropriate clothing and footwear, and a hot meal. We offer referral services to local shelters, food banks, hospitals and detox centers. We will provide rides to these places and wait with them until successfully admitted for services or treatment, Each woman we meet receives a phone number they can call any time, any day to speak with a recovery coach, ask for additional supplies or have a meal.
