Being homeless makes it difficult to attend to the most basic hygiene and health requirements. Elizabeth Gregory Home recently expanded its Day Center to meet more of the needs that their clients identified. The new facilities enable them to grow the offerings of the Health and Wellness program, giving low-income, homeless, at-risk women a place where they can address health-related needs in one stop. When more of their essential daily needs are met, women are able to turn their energy towards taking the important steps needed to become independent. In addition to helping with immediate needs such as food, clothing, and day shelter, Elizabeth Gregory Home also assists with long-range goals such as acquiring permanent housing, improving life skills, and earning sustainable income to break free from the cycle of homelessness.
