El Nido Domestic Violence Transitional Housing Program
Gives abused women the chance to make a fresh start – with the tools they need for their families to thrive.
El Nido (Spanish for the Nest) is a safe, confidential place where homeless women with children can heal from trauma, gain new knowledge and job skills, and become financially solvent. This 12-month program offers families stable housing and supportive services while clients move towards self-sufficiency.

How It Works:
Residents live in an 11-unit apartment complex for a year or more and, with the assistance of social workers, obtain the counseling, child care, employment, educational and transportation services they need to become self-sufficient. Each of the units is beautifully furnished by a local congregation.
