Homeless Women Veterans


Women Veterans


At the Sew-In this year we had guest speaker Joan Sisco from the Veterans First LTD – Affordable Housing for Women Veterans in Arizona.  Joan went into detail and presented stories regarding some of the issues for these women, noting that traditional efforts are lacking in identifying and assisting Women Veterans.  Veterans First has opened Mary Ellen’s Place in Phoenix that can house 15 women and is currently renovating a second facility, Sally’s Place,  that will house women and children.  These facilities are not funded by the government but through donations from the public and other nonprofit organizations. Flyer handed out at Sew-In

They are in need of small pillow cases (finished size 14 inches x 20 inches) and drawstring bags (12 inches x 12 inches finished with drawstring) to put toiletries in when their residents first move in.

Joann Woodfill will be collecting both items.
