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.

"Sarah's is a quiet and peaceful place, managed by good people. Sarah's will help me to develop hope, live again, and face life. I will again find a home and a community as I meet the many people at Sarah's."
