How We Transform Lives:

NAOMI Programming and Supportive Services

NAOMI operates an outreach program for women recovering from alcohol, substance and domestic violence abuse. The focus of this program is to ensure abstinence from any mood or mind altering substances. A large percentage of women we serve are homeless and without income.

NAOMI operates its program 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Basic needs are met with meals, laundry facility, transportation assistance, mailing address, telephone access and clothing. The program equips the women with the tools and resources they need. 

NAOMI currently accommodates housing for 5 women at a time. 

NAOMI's goal is to integrate the women back into the community by providing programming which consists of three phases.
