We served 330 women.
More than 80% of the women that "drop in" to our center take advantage of at least one additional program or service. This year, we've been able to expand our onsite therapy and regularly have a licensed therapist in the center.
Supported 41 pregnant women with mentoring, education, and access to quality medical care.
Peer mentors serve as an example of what is possible. For pregnant women, support that understands what you've been through is critical to a healthy, happy pregnancy. We worked in partnership with Dignity Health, Chicks in Crisis, City of Refuge, and Bishop Gallegos Maternity Home to ensure women have all of the support and education they need to be the mothers they want to be.
Provided 5,000 meals.
We know the sad truth that women trade sex to meet their basic needs for food, shelter, and other necessities. At CASH, we meet basic needs first. We have steadily increased the number of meals we provide to women and have become a trusted place for women to bring their children. We also provide take home boxes of food thanks to our partnership with the Sacramento Food Bank and Family Center.
Partnered with one of the One Community Health to Provide 120 HIV tests.
40% of the women we serve know their HIV status. Our goal is 100%.
Diverted 78 women from the criminal justice system through our RESET prostitution diversion program.
For far too long, women have been incarcerated instead of helped, which is not a system that can eliminate exploitation. Our Program supports, educates, and listens to women. We work with women to reach their goals.
Assisted 60 women through our comprehensive Opening Doors Anti-Trafficking & Victim of Crimes programs.
100% of women who have been in the program for one year or more received both medical and mental health care, and/or behavioral health care and support.
Developed 2 toolkits to help educate the community about HIV and the risk for women.
These simple toolkits are designed to educate the community about HIV and the risk for women. Each tool kit also increases the comfort level of service providers and champions when talking about HIV and sexual health.
Helped 9 women secure Shelter Plus Care Vouchers.
Shelter Plus Care is a permanent housing solution for our most vulnerable community members. This program, through the Sacramento Housing and Redevelopment Agency, ends chronic homelessness and allows people to focus on their health and well-being with the support they need.
