General Information:
The Montgomery Avenue Women's Center (MAWC) is the only daytime services center in Montgomery County Maryland that exclusively caters to the needs of homeless women. As humanitarians we devote ourselves to helping the women achieve self-sufficiency. Our Mission and Philosophy is to sincerely help to empower each individual woman with supportive services and lifestyle workshops. We are an oasis where homeless women can come each day, while rebuilding her life. We help to restore and respect her dignity, enhance her life style, and overall well-being, in an environment that is accomodating and nurturing. Our daily programs of group sessions, counseling and life skill courses are designed to help women become self-sufficient. By helping the women with job readiness skills, work ethics, resume building we encourage them to become independent and ready for the workforce. We focus on building socializing skills and identifying their strengths and hobbies. While here, the women develop strong friendships and genuinely care for one other, sharing goals and motivation toward building a solid future. MAWC is an independent non-profit 501c(3) organization that provides supportive services to more than 250 homeless women each year. The purpose of the program is to provide the essential services that homeless women need to achieve self-sufficiency. We provide the following services: job search, resume writing, computer training, case management and life skills.

Additionally, we provide for their basic human needs such as food, hygiene and shelter as well as help to get placed in housing, attend GED, take part in computer training, use of phone for important calls, receive prescription medication, provide transportation, storage and relocation assistance.
