Friends & Partners

Sarah’s Circle has worked with a wide variety of friends and partners since our founding in 1979. We collaborate, internally and externally, to maximize resources, share ideas, and find the best answers to our problems. Many of our partners have been supporting our mission for over 30 years. 

Sarah’s Circle is grateful for the continued support of over 120 faith-based organizations, 220 foundation partners, and many more businesses, corporations, and community groups that have stepped up to assist women as they overcome homelessness.
