Regina Finds Safety at Sarah's... an Oasis for Women
Updated: Feb 27
Regina left her home in Cameroon to escape an increasingly dangerous situation to her health and well-being. Finding no safe place to stay, her immigration lawyer referred her to Sarah’s... an Oasis for Women, a program or the Sisters of St. Joseph, and supported by the Ministries Foundation.
Sarah's... an Oasis for Women is a home dedicated to the safety and dignity of a diverse community of women who have survived violence, abuse, torture, war, discrimination, and trauma. The residents of Sarah's begin new and productive lives through programs that build self-esteem, self-sufficiency, confidence, determination, and community.
At Sarah’s she worked on her resume, enrolled at the International Institute of Minnesota, finished her Nursing Assistant Degree, and completed her Bachelor of Science in Nursing.
Sarah's cannot stop. It has to continue because there are a lot of women like me out there who still need a place, who still need a home. Sarah's can give them that home.
