What kind of person steals bikes from homeless women? The Bicycle Tree very generously donated bicycles to WISEPlace and found a sturdy bike rack for us. For many of our residents, a bicycle is their only means of transportation. We arrived to find the bicycles stolen! We know you will help us turn this day of disappointment into a day of joy. Please support our iheartoc campaign which runs until noon today. Make a donation.

Your gift makes an immediate positive impact on homeless women in our county. 

Ebell: WISE Thing To Do


 Thanksgiving Dinner and Valentine's Day Tea


The WISE Thing To Do (TWTTD), has hosted two special day events for WISEPlace. The guild members include: Maeva Hutter, Julie Onken, Barbara Wood, Alice Stylianou and Kathi Bowman. They prepared and served a superb traditional Thanksgiving dinner at the Positive Step house for current and former WISEPlace residents. They also decorated and gave each program participant a gift. It was especially nice to have a holiday dinner in the more intimate setting that the house provides.


The ladies of this guild also hosted a Valentine's Day Tea in conjunction with the February shower for 7 "Steps"program graduates. The guild did a beautiful job of decorating the Enderle Room with red and white hearts and flowers for the occasion and provided lovely tea sets and a wide array of proper tea fare. The table decorations included gifts for all of the residents festooned with balloons.


They rounded out their portion of the program with a fun game and prizes. Maeva Hutter and Barbara Wood also volunteer at WISEPlace on Monday and Wednesday afternoons. This guild is providing much needed incremental support to our program!
