The following project is the development of a social support program for women who are newly housed through Sarah's Circle, an agency that serves women who are homeless in Chicago, Illinois. The program development was guided by a thorough review of the literature and a needs assessment conducted at Sarah's Circle. The social support program was created using the befriending model as a framework, seeking to provide companionship to women in need. Ideas for future implementation and research are included.
