The reason each woman arrives at Naomi’s House is varied. Many suffer from severe, persistent mental illness, others from drug or alcohol abuse. Each has a different story to tell. But they all have a commonality and that is homelessness. The Guarantee Good Will Network has helped provide a safe overnight shelter for these homeless women by making a $1,000 donation to Naomi’s House.
Naomi’s House at Poverello specifically targets homeless women, offering them an overnight shelter in a relaxed atmosphere, where there is structure, but it is minimal. The first and most important task with these women is the development of a trusting relationship. Only through trust can these women begin to address the path that led to homelessness and begin to reconstruct their lives.
Naomi’s House works in conjunction with Poverello House and the Holy Cross Center for Women to also provide meals, showers, laundry, and medical/dental care. Naomi’s House also offers needs assessment, goal planning, health and personal living education, social service advocacy, case management, and limited transportation. Their goal is to be the starting place to help homeless women find their way back to a productive, healthy life.
