Nurture Home is our response to single women and mothers who are homeless, and most often the
victims of domestic violence. Nurture Home provides structured interventions to empower each of the
 women to become self-sufficient. Combined with individualized support to improve the mental health of
 women and their children, our goal is to end the cycle of homelessness.





We want to thank St. John's United Methodist Church "Josephs Coat Group" 
for supporting Nurture Home and donating these beautiful afghans for our residents.

Nurture Home has experienced a budget cut of $45,000 due to changes in priorities of our Federal Funds through HUD. This shortfall could be a crisis for our agency, compromising the sustainability of Nurture Home, our shelter for homeless 
single women and children. We've changed the lives of over 100 families since 
2009.

our residents. Please give, be the difference maker.
