Asylee Women Enterprise helps women seeking asylum to rebuild their lives and their spirits. Asylee Women Enterprise (AWE) provides transitional housing, companionship and community to asylum seekers by offering a safe and nurturing home, opportunities to connect within the larger community and each other.
The seeds of AWE began in January 2011. It is a collaboration of Catholic Sisters from 8 Catholic women’s religious communities in Baltimore working together to provide housing and a network of community to women seeking asylum. It is a secular organization open to all asylum seekers.
