About Sponsors

Sponsors' philosophy is rooted in the belief that people can and do change, and that each day every person is deserving a second chance at life.

Sponsors empowers formerly incarcerated individuals as they work to rebuild their lives. They offer wrap-around supportive services, including permanent supportive housing, mental health counseling, parenting classes, employment services, and mentorship.

Sponsors' Bothy Cottage at their Downtown Campus provides housing for women like Shelby. She moved into Bothy Cottage after regaining custody of her two young children. The cottage provides a safe and nurturing environment where reunification and growth can take place for children and their formerly incarcerated mothersShelby received immediate access to onsite services. Today, Shelby has transitioned into a permanent supportive apartment and continues to work towards greater self-sufficiency. She is grateful for the kind and compassionate help she has received from Sponsors.

Women's Gift Annual Fundraiser 


Proceeds raised for this year’s fundraiser will go toward Bothy Cottage for much needed repairs, upgrades, and replacing old appliances. Bothy Cottage is the home to single mothers with children on Sponsors' Downtown Campus.


Having a safe, stable, and comfortable home for families rebuilding after incarceration has been a critical aspect of success for thousands of women and families over the years.
