Thank You for Providing a Home for Healing!

The Home for Healing campaign in support of the Rita A. DiMento Women’s Medical Clinic at St. Anthony Shrine was a success! Thanks to the generous $10,000 match from our anonymous donor, and the outpouring of support from our community, we received

Over 250 gifts totaling $40,825!

Thank you to all who gave! Your gift will allow us to provide more homeless women in Boston with a safe, private space in which to receive the specialized care they need.

If you would still like to give to the Women’s Medical Clinic, please visit our main giving page.

Imagine what it feels like to be a woman experiencing homelessness, in need of medical and psychological care, exhausted, desperate, afraid, and vulnerable to the dangers around you:

  • Physical and sexual assault 
  • Substance use disorder
  • Illness including COVID-19
  • Addiction
  • Mental illness
  • Human trafficking
  • Extreme weather conditions

The Women’s Medical Clinic at St. Anthony Shrine is a Home for Healing that serves the complex health care needs of homeless women in Downtown Boston. 

When a homeless woman walks into the Women’s Medical Clinic at St. Anthony Shrine, she is entering a welcoming environment that is private and safe, where she can help herself to coffee and snacks while waiting to be attended. She can use a clean bathroom and shower and be cared for in a fully-equipped examination room.

With your donation, we can open our doors to more women and provide a safe haven where they can receive the specialized care they need.
