Institute of Women Today


The Institute of Women Today is a non-profit organization serving the Chicago community since 1974. Our mission is twofold: to provide interim housing for homeless women and their children and to provide experiences that empower, mentor, and support women so they can achieve their highest potential. IWT operates Maria Shelter, a 50-bed interim shelter for homeless women and their children, and the Vincennes Senior Center , which offers senior citizens a place to socialize, enjoy a nutritious meal, and learn new skills. Both facilities are located in the Englewood community of Chicago, one of the most economically deprived areas of Chicago.
