Helping single women and women with children get from homelessness to self-sufficiency.

Dorothy Mae Hall Women's Center (DMHWC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity that aims to empower the invisible populations of Wake, Johnston, Wilson, Nash and Edgecombe Co in North Carolina. We provide basic needs and enrichment services to women, children, and families living in extreme poverty and facing seemingly insurmountable barriers. DMHWC provides transitional housing and support services to homeless women and families. DMHWC offers homeless individuals more than a place to live; DMHWC provides a foundation to help them rebuild their lives by implementing the holistic approach. DMHWC provides a safe, supportive and constructive environment. The supplemental supports these participants receive from professional staff and volunteer efforts are the cornerstone for their success. DMHWC is designed to work with each family, individually, to help the family develop a measurable and achievable service plan, which addresses the root causes of homelessness. The Dorothy Mae Hall Women's Center program is designed to: -Empower homeless single women and families with children to attain self-sufficiency -Systematically address the multiple barriers in the paths of single women and homeless families -End the cycle of homelessness
