As we near the end of Women's History Month, SOAR would like to honor the contributions, resilience, and strength of women who have made a difference in the Triangle community. To that end, we would like to highlight the Dorothy Mae Hall Women's Center and its founder and Executive Director, Ms. Freda Bullock.

A Little Background

The Dorothy Mae Hall Women's Center (DMHWC) is named in honor of an intrepid healthcare worker in Midway, Georgia—Ms. Dorothy Mae Hall. Ms. Hall's committed acts of service to her community as well as to those in her care showcased a love and compassion that strove to improve their life circumstances. It is in honor of this selfless aim to connect to and uplift others that the center bears her name and carries out its chief goals: to empower homeless single women and families with children to attain self-sufficiency, systematically address the multiple barriers in the paths of single women and homeless families, and end the cycle of homelessness.

Honoring the Torchbearer

As the founder and executive director of the DMHWC, Ms. Freda Bullock has committed countless hours and resources to ensure the legacy of Dorothy Mae Hall continues. She works to provide a wide range of resources to the center's clients in need, from workshops, home goods, and nutritional supplies to temporary housing and connecting with agencies that can provide permanent homes. While there is much to be done, Ms. Bullock, Ms. Hall, and the DMHWC show us that all things are possible.
