Outreach to Healing a Woman's Soul

Healing a Woman's Soul (H.A.W.S) is a non-profit that helps women and children who are domestic violence victims heal physically, emotionally, and spiritually in the Christian tradition.  We provide spiritual support in secular domestic violence shelters, halfway houses for substance abuse as well as in churches.

St. George's Mission and Outreach supports them with prayer support and various donation collections.

St. George's Outreach HAWS Advent Project

St. George's helps provide a Christmas to women in our area and their children who are living in a shelter this holiday season. Mission and Outreach is looking for a few volunteers to help plan an Advent project for this individuals. If you would like to help in 2020, email Jo Anne Robbins: Cliftonparkjosie@ gmail.com.

Hundreds of women in our area and their children are living in a shelter during the Christmas season. St.George’s Outreach invites all St. George’s parishioners to fill a red HAWS (Healing a Woman’s Soul) Holiday Bag. 

The bags will be available beginning Saturday, November 29th. The Donation Deadline is Sunday, December 13. If you wish to shop ahead, see the shopping lists below.
