History: Women of Hope, Inc. (WoH) is a non-profit, 501c3 organization whose mission is to serve homeless female veterans who lack the tools to maintain a sustainable lifestyle while transitioning back into the community. WoH was founded in 2007 by Sheila Locatelli after confidently embracing her desire to identify the needs of homeless women and provide the services that would empower them to become self-sufficient and able to develop a healthy lifestyle.
Mission: To provide safe, supportive transitional housing and assist, empower and encourage homeless female veterans to become economically self-sufficient.
Vision: Establish Women of Hope as the leader in providing housing to those female veterans who have served their country only to find due to unforeseen circumstances that they have returned as a homeless individual. Women of Hope will become a leader in improving the quality of life through education, mentoring, economic advancement and providing an overall safe environment for female veterans.
