The Starfish Story
by Loren Eiseley
"One day a man was walking along the beach when he noticed a boy picking something up and gently throwing it into the ocean.
Approaching the boy, he asked, “What are you doing?”
The youth replied, “Throwing starfish back into the ocean.
The surf is up and the tide is going out. If I don’t throw them back, they’ll die.”
“Son,” the man said, “don’t you realize there are miles and miles of beach and hundreds of starfish?
You can’t make a difference!”
After listening politely, the boy bent down, picked up another starfish, and threw it back into the surf.
Then, smiling at the man, he said…”
I made a difference for that one.”
Our Services & Programs
Our vision is borne from the empathy and understanding we have for the devastating effects these damaging lifestyles have on women, as well as the great hope and certainty we place in the healing process.
Group therapy allows our women to overcome challenges in a safe setting. Our women are able to view the perspective of their peers and find unique solutions together.
Individual therapy allows each woman to get the unique attention they require. They are taught healthy coping skills and are given the tools to heal from their traumas.
Case management allows us to take an assessment of each client and build a plan for success. Resources are provided to woman which give the necessary support though each's own journey to independent living.

“I thank God everyday for homes like this being open. This can help so many women escape the life they once lived"

“There is not enough housing for women in Arizona that are coming out of jail, in recovery and getting off the streets. The Dignity House would provide a much needed home for this special population of women. Catherine has spent the last 13 years working with women sharing her own strengths, hope and wisdom by modeling what recovery is about.
