A program of St. Francis Seraph Ministries and a sponsored ministry of St. John the Baptist Province, The Sarah Center is a female-centered outreach ministry and safe gathering place for impoverished women in Over the Rhine neighborhood of Cincinnati. The need for more than fellowship and a cup of coffee metamorphosed into a creative center of energy for poor women. Today the Sarah Center specializes in encouraging women, from all walks of life, to be self-reliant, embrace their potential and learn new skills in order to grow – creatively, economically, socially and independently.
Their mission is to nurture and nourish families by offering skills training in jewelry making, sewing, quilting and other forms of art as well as support, so women can build their self-esteem and earn supplemental income for themselves and their families.
