Sister Jose Women’s Center has been serving Tucson’s homeless women since 2010, and about two years ago, Executive Director Jean Fedigan said she realized that the facility near Five Points in downtown Tucson was stretched to capacity.
After a failed attempt to move into a building in the West University neighborhood, which was thwarted by neighbor's opposition, Fedigan found a new location on Park and 22nd Street. The group relocated there on April 29. Metro Week dropped by for a visit this week to see where women with nowhere else to go can spend the hottest hours of the day.
