BSL supports women in need in the San Diego Community by providing affordable housing, offering hope, and building community. Services include advocacy, housing assistance, meals, day programming and connection with community resources and programs.
SW came to us as an escape from a violently abusive relationship. Her episodes of anxiety were debilitating. Through the support of the BSL staff and her own determination, she is now happily married to a loving man who is supportive of her and her diagnosis. She also spreads mental health awareness and informative presentations for the Meeting Place, a club house for individuals with a mental illness diagnosis.
NM came to us unemployed and was admitted on one of our scholarships, which gives the resident time to go back to school and obtain employment or government benefits. Upon moving out, she is now living on her own and found a job as an accounting supervisor.
