A home for women seeking safety, dignity, and healing.
She welcomed me, she said "This will be your home, come any time you want". . . I wouldn't be here if it was not for Sarah's (Selamawit Kifleyesus, former resident)
Sarah's... an Oasis for Women is a home dedicated to the safety and dignity of a diverse community of women who have survived violence, abuse, torture, war, discrimination, and trauma. The residents of Sarah's begin new and productive lives through programs that build self-esteem, self-sufficiency, confidence, determination, and community. Sarah's connects its residents to social services, education opportunities, job preparedness training, and necessary medical care. Women come to Sarah's through referrals from outside organizations.
Sarah's is a ministry of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet (CSJ), St. Paul Province, and
opened its doors in 1996. Sarah's is funded by the CSJs, the Sisters of St. Joseph Ministries Foundation, and many community collaborators.
