WOHAD is devoted to eliminating homelessness for justice-involved
women by providing transitional housing and programs that build character
to facilitate a successful reentry transition.
WOHAD envisions a country that responds with empathy to challenges
faced by justice-involved women and the barriers that prevent their
successful return to society.
