Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Catherine Place is a women’s center. We serve female identifying people regardless of age, race, ethnicity, country of origin, or immigration status. Person-centered support is a cornerstone of our programming. Anyone can come in during open hours with or without an appointment and speak to staff or a volunteer about their struggles. Our goal is to serve people suffering from the effects of social, political, and economic barriers; to engaging those who would normally fall through the cracks.

At Catherine Place we provide personalized individual support and support groups to build interpersonal connections and healthy relationships. Traditional advocacy is supported by a strong focus on social and emotional wellbeing, wraparound resources, and mind/body connection activities. We focus on developing relationships that center around principles of trauma informed care; safety, transparency and trustworthiness, choice, collaboration, and empowerment. Clients are listened to and supported through general advocacy, medical advocacy, civil/legal support, safety planning, transportation and emergency financial assistance, employment assistance, housing/rental assistance, immigration assistance, and referrals to support groups/therapy.

Catherine Place has been providing emotional and spiritual support, support groups, and healing arts experiences to women for almost 20 years. Women are at higher risk of being victims of crime and over 90% of our clients report physical or emotional harm, either currently active or in their past. We have been serving the Spanish speaking community since 2007 and now have a fully bilingual, bicultural program staff. We have an integrated service model that supports clients regardless of their circumstance. The issues that women regularly seek individual support for are; domestic violence, sexual assault, crime victimization, immigration, community resources, parenting, shelter/housing, food, and counseling.
Catherine Place has built a reputation of providing compassionate, confidential services. We strive to meet people where they are, rather than taking them through a set process. Program participants determine their own schedule of care, which may continue for years. During that time, they learn self-regulation techniques, develop self-confidence, and build new social networks. Catherine Place endeavors to amplify marginalized voices, develop leadership skills, and build participation in our community.

Catherine Place has been serving marginalized women for 20 years. We have developed a bilingual and bicultural program staff, a diverse board leadership including multiple immigrants. We serve approximately 1,600 women a year through our Individual Advocacy, Support Groups, and Healing Arts services.
