Throughout Central Asia, high unemployment rates and gender inequality lead to despair and family dysfunction including domestic violence. In one of the region’s capital cities, a local women’s shelter is serving at-risk women and their children—many of whom are fleeing abusive households. Women’s Shelter: City (WSC) provides housing and services for these families, and also offers vocational training for shelter residents and at-risk women in the community. Followers of Jesus on WSC staff are sharing God’s love in word and deed with women and children, helping them heal from physical and emotional wounds and prepare for lives free of violence.
Your gift to Women’s Shelter: City (WSC) has a direct impact on WSC’s daily operations, enabling them to share the Good News of Jesus—in word and deed—with least-reached peoples living in urban areas of a Central Asian nation. While shelter needs are always best determined by the local directors, here are examples of what your giving helps provide: qualified staffing, meals, clothing, bedding, training classes, counseling, childcare and much more.

WOMEN’S SHELTER: CITY’S IMPACT
Every year, scores of women receive counseling and other services provided by a Christian staff. Women housed at shelter locations, along with those who live locally with relatives, also receive training in vocational skills to provide income for themselves and their children. Some also have the opportunity for on-the-job training in cooking, baking and food service. Many of these women have never heard about Jesus, and most have never had a Christian friend or even a neighbor before coming to these shelters.
