The Dwelling Place is a privately-funded transitional residence for women located in Midtown Manhattan. Since 1977, they provided shelter, sustenance and support to thousands of women.


Our members assemble gift bags and prizes which are given at a Valentine's Day party hosted by SIM for the ladies at The Dwelling Place. We also hire a pianist and play "Name That Tune" for prizes. This event is usually held the last week in January. Please check the calendar for the event date.
