1 in 4 homeless individuals is an unaccompanied woman. That’s 25 percent of the homeless population!
This is a population that is severely under-served and overlooked nationally and locally.
WISEPlace, a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization, is a community of housing and hope for women in crisis. Formerly the South Orange County YWCA, WISEPlace has a 90-year history of caring for the community. By meeting basic needs such as housing, clothing, physical and emotional nourishment, as well as vocational and life skills training, the WISEPlace Hotel for Women is one of the few places unaccompanied homeless women can go to begin again.
Our intent is to end homelessness.
