Tamar’s Center is a day center that provides shelter and care for women who suffer from addiction and are being exploited through human sex trafficking. Many of these women are homeless.


We act as a first responder helping the women with their most urgent needs, ranging from food to security and from housing to medical care.


Tamar's is open:
Monday-Friday 
8:00am - 2:00pm

What We Do

On average, the number of individual clients we see is currently over 100. Over the past 18 months there has been a 256% increase in the number of client visits.


We rely on a small staff and dedicated volunteers to run the center each day. Volunteers, particularly those with a social work or medical background, are always needed.
