ABOUT US - VISION, MISSION, PHILOSOPHY & CORE VALUES
Our Vision: We envision communities of women mobilizing across age groups empowered to change the landscape of homelessness; never having to sleep on the streets or in unfit spaces.
Our Mission: to prevent and end homelessness in the community by providing early intervention solutions, transitional housing resources and comprehensive supportive programs to meet the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of women and their families.
Our Philosophy - SFPI believes in the dignity, beauty, and power of womanhood and that every woman deserves the opportunity to live in a safe, clean space, be self-sufficient and thrive from a healthy body, soul and spirit.
Our lens is culturally competent, relevant and responsive towards prevention and intervention solutions that remove pathways leading to homelessness.
Our Core Values:
Respect, Educational Legacy &
*Respect - We
believe each woman has her own uniqueness, beauty and life-purpose. We respect her journey and aim to aid her
with truth, compassion, and sisterhood.
*Educational Legacy - We reflect upon centuries of trailblazers who laid the groundwork for countless opportunities that women have today. In honor of our forbearers, as well as those women of today, we celebrate education and training as a way to grow in knowledge and skill and commit to passing the torch of lessons learned academically, professionally and spiritually for the continuity of the next generation.
*Friendship & Community - We consent to the saying “no man is an island to
himself” John Donne (1572-1631). Ecclesiastes 4:9 says, “two are better than one for they have a good
report for their labor”. SPFI aims to strengthen community by forging healthy friendship and alliances that
remove social loneliness, shame and other barriers linked with the hardships
of homelessness. “No one ever-ever has to do life alone” (ttm, 2013).
