On March 29th, the ladies of Women of Vision, NYC took a trip to The Women’s Bowery Mission at Heartsease Home, a faith-based residential recovery program for homeless women in Manhattan. The Bowery Mission Women’s Center provides a home and community where women can participate in counseling, life skills classes, tutoring and resume assistance with the aim of re-entering society as whole, productive individuals.
The ladies of WOV prepared a dinner of beef lasagna, vegetable lasagna and brownies for the residents and staff of The Bowery Mission, then sat down to share stories and make connections with the women. Friendships were formed, with some women returning for follow-up visits in the following days.
While our work often touches women at the far reaches of the world, we greatly enjoyed the opportunity to serve in this city we call home.
