Transforming lives . . . Restoring women

Welcome to NAOMI



The NAOMI (New Attitude on My Image) is a non-profit organization located in Toledo, Ohio. The organization is dedicated to providing shelter, support and beneficial services for women overcoming alcohol and substance abuse. Certified by the Ohio Mental Health and Addiction Services (OMHAS) and accredited by CARF, NAOMI helps clients recover, reunite with their families and children, and find employment and permanent housing.   


Who We Are

 The genesis of NAOMI can be traced to Friendship Baptist Church, which for over 100 years, has developed initiatives to deal with issues and build on the strengths of the people and community. A 10-member volunteer board of directors governs NAOMI. The organization provides up to 12 months of support for women who are  in recovery from alcohol and substance abuse. NAOMI is one of the only 24-hour service organization in the Metro Toledo area that supports women regardless of income. 


Our Mission

NAOMI is on a mission to transform the physical, spiritual, and emotional lives of women impacted by chemical addiction through a holistic approach of long-term residential care, individualized support, and access to comprehensive resources so that each woman can realize their full potential as valuable members in their families and community. We're working toward a drug-free community, one woman and family at a time.

Who We Serve

NAOMI serves clients who are recovering addicts, suffering from mild mental illness, and/or recently released from prison. Length of stay is determined by the consumers needs. Services are provided on a first come, first served basis. Clients must be willing to participate in a supportive program that includes case management, support groups, and workshops. The women who enter into the NAOMI program arrive with multiple needs beyond the presenting problems. They are often equipped with poor problem-solving skills, inconsistent work history, limited interpersonal skills, inability to find affordable housing and poor support systems among other concerns.
