*Goodwill VISTA* Center for Wisdom's Women, Lewiston
The mission of the Center is to be a sacred and safe place that supports and empowers women. It is a place where all women can gather to break their isolation, build community and enrich and better their lives. Since we are located in a very low income and high risk neighborhood, women bring with them the many troubles of poverty including abusive relationships, addictions, unfair treatment, mental and physical health issues, compromised nutrition and hygiene. The model involves the creation of Herban Works, a social enterprise where the women can begin to do meaningful work in a small, respectful environment where they are given the support needed to lead independent lives.
