About Erie DAWN

Who We Are

In 1995, the Sisters of Mercy, the Sisters of St. Joseph and the Benedictine Sisters came together to address a critical need in our community – transitional housing for homeless women and children.

Faced with problems like domestic abuse, catastrophic medical bills or loss of employment, these women need time to get back on their feet; yet the length of stay in most emergency shelters is limited to three or four months.

By offering a program of supportive housing, case management, mentoring and advocacy, Erie DAWN helps homeless women transition back into independence by helping them to acquire the tools and resources needed for self-sufficiency.

Since 1995, Erie DAWN has provided services and housing for over 600 women and  children.

Erie DAWN is funded by financial and in-kind contributions from individuals, landlords, businesses, churches, civic organizations, nonprofit organizations and government agencies.

 

WHO can qualify:

  • Programming is open to homeless women, with or without children
  • Women must be employed full-time, or part-time if enrolled in continuing education classes
  • Erie DAWN serves qualified participants regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, age or disability

 

WHAT we offer:
