Nellie’s operates a 38-bed emergency shelter for women and children who are homeless and women and children leaving violence, and also a community support and outreach program for low income and socially isolated women and children in the community. Nellie’s is a community-based feminist women’s organization committed to social justice and anti-oppression. We have been serving the community since 1973. Year after year, we help women rebuild their lives by providing access to counseling, information and appropriate referrals, and by providing advocacy and support in areas such as legal and income assistance, training, education and housing.
