The Women’s Foundation has actively contributed to the Hunger & Homeless Coalition of Collier County, highlighting the alarming fact that over 70 senior women faced homelessness in our region. Through collaborative efforts with organizations like the Collier Community Foundation, the Wasie Foundation, and the Naples Woman’s Club, we’ve successfully provided housing for 13 of these senior women.
Beyond just shelter, our community partnerships have extended vital resources encompassing food, health, and mental well-being.
Life’s unpredictable events, whether it’s a divorce, the passing of a spouse, job loss, or a severe health setback, can lead senior women into homelessness. While these events might be inevitable, the community’s collective action can ensure that these women find safe housing and essential services.
