We create community through radical hospitality with those marginalized by poverty, houselessness, sex work, violence and substance use. Our doors are open to anyone who identifies as a woman or whose gender identity makes them vulnerable.
On December 5, 2003, the founding mothers of Rahab's Sisters gathered on SE 82nd Avenue to offer hot coffee to women they met on the streets. Mugs of coffee evolved into a warm meal inside Saints Peter and Paul Episcopal Church, a safe space that continues to be our home today. Before there were enough volunteers to maintain regular hours, women knew Rahab's Sisters was open by candles lit in the windows - a warm and welcoming glow on a cold night...
Friday Night volunteers are the heart of Rahab's Sisters! Join us as we welcome our sisters without judgment, share a meal, laugh together and listen to one another.
"You made me feel like a human being. Like I belonged somewhere. Like I matter and I look forward to Friday night now instead of dreading it."
