The Women's Resource Center hosts a representative from Hagar's House, for its Brown Bag Lunch Talk April 10. Focusing on Sexual Non Violence Awareness Week, the discussion will discuss the role Hagar's House plays in the community.
Hagar's House is a home for women and children that offers: A beautiful, clean, safe place to rest and call home; an open and empowering space that welcomes women, children and those who identify as transgender; an intentional community that is actively engaged in undoing the root causes of poverty; holistic programming focused on physical health, emotional/spiritual health and social justice; a savings program in which working residents save 70 percent of their income, ideally $3,000 at the time of moving out; and healthy food and space to plant in a community garden.
