Women Experiencing Homelessness
PACEM has served women facing homelessness since 2004. In recent years we have seen an increase in the numbers of women in need of shelter. Concurrently, the severity of their physical and mental health issues has increased.
In 2019 PACEM received funding to support a new full-time case manager through the generosity of the group Women United in Philanthropy.
Therapeutic programming, crisis management, and housing counseling tailored to the unique needs of women experiencing homelessness proved critical to our shelter operations. In the process of her work, Heather Kellams ensured that HALF of our female-identifying guests exited to stable housing options in the 2019-2020 season.
