Sister Norah’s Place

We are working to fill a void to provide food services to women in a long-term shelter. We want to provide a meal once a month. These women have either experienced homelessness, trauma, or mental and physical illnesses. After reaching out to the shelter, they shared that they need assistance with meals on Mondays. 


The program began sheltering women on January 17, 2005 and has the capacity to house thirteen women at a time. Each woman is treated on an individual basis, thus there is no predetermined length of stay. Sister Norah's Place is the only shelter of its kind in the Sacramento area and provides each guest with a stable and nurturing living environment, advocacy, and guidance. Each woman is assisted in creating a safety net of support that she will be able to access for the rest of her life.


Sister Nora’s Place offers residents the opportunity to live more productive lives off of the streets, non-coercive and constant supportive services, a safe and peaceful environment, private living space in cubicles designed especially for residents, and activities to stabilize their lives including mental and physical health evaluations, medical appointment assistance, medication management, support groups, and financial management.


In order to establish an ongoing partnership with a local organization working to benefit the lives of Sacramento women. We are working to provide them with a monthly meal.
