Women’s Hearth is a drop-in day center in downtown Spokane–a safe space for women who have experienced poverty, trauma and/or homelessness to find a “hearth” of welcome, respect, and community. Women’s Hearth provides activities, classes, social service referrals and housing-search case management in a compassionate and supportive environment 5 days a week. Participants also have access to phones, computers, internet, healthy food, hygiene supplies, and showers.
The Hearth is a safe, welcoming community that promotes growth and well-being in body, mind, and spirit for women of diverse backgrounds. It fosters nurturing relationships, encourages self-determination, and advocates for change in systems that oppress women. During 2022, a total of 1,035 women accessed services at the Hearth and 17 of those women obtained housing.
Finding Community in Downtown
We provide free services that promote growth and healing including:
Access to basic needs such as showers, food, and hygiene products.
Numerous groups and classes per month, including 12-step meetings, support groups, life skills classes, arts and crafts, music, spirituality, and self-expression.
Community meals, meetings, speakers and other events that foster a sense of community.
Access to resources and referrals for various social services, especially for housing and mental health concerns.
A technology center where women can access basic online services, search for housing, apply for jobs, research chronic medical issues, and reconnect with their support systems.
SNAP created a Homeless Resource Pocket Guide to alert those in need to service sites and further connection with additional resources. Please note, not every resource is listed.
