Patty’s Place is an initiative that provides at-risk women (trans-inclusive) with the hygiene supplies and resources necessary to maintain a safe and healthy lifestyle. “At-risk” women include sex workers, elderly women, and disabled women, among others. Patty’s Place does not approach these women from a place of shame or judgment; its purpose is to make the lives of these women healthier and safer.
Initially, Patty’s Place only offered a place to bathe, shower, and sleep (no questions asked) to women. Now, it has expanded and also offers hygiene and contraceptive products. Individuals get to take what they need, with no restrictions.
