Second Annual Go for the Green Golf Tournament for Charity
Earth’s Healing will sponsor the Second Annual Go for the Green Golf Tournament for Charity, March 23, at Sewailo Golf Course, in Tucson. This year’s chosen charity is the Sister Jose Women’s Center (SrJoseWomensShelter.org). For many Tucson women experiencing homelessness, Sister Jose Women’s Center is their only safe haven and the first step to recovery from homelessness.
Because of Tucson’s spectacular weather, it’s no wonder that it is a destination point for golf enthusiasts. Playing the game that many love has an added bonus when the proceeds all go toward a worthy cause.
Sister Jose’s Sisters Helping Sisters Day Program is a low-demand daytime drop-in center that provides three meals a day, showers, laundry, clothing, shoes and personal hygiene products for homeless women. The need for daytime services continues to grow; guest visits average more than 2,000 each month.
A Safe Place for Women Night Program offers 36 women a hot, home-cooked meal and a safe space to sleep. Sister Jose’s provides over 13,000 safe overnights each year to homeless women who would otherwise sleep outdoors. Volunteers cook and spend the night supervising the program.
Sister Jose’s is more than a center, but a community built upon the values of compassion, dignity and respect in a non-institutionalized setting. For many of their guests, they are home.
