In Honor of Mother's Day!

Most of the clients we see everyday at The Nest - Center for Women, Children and Families are Mothers. Mothers that need counseling, Mothers that need healing, and Mothers that need us to help them with their little ones. Our annual Mother's Day mailing is coming out soon! We would like to honor your Mother or someone special when you send in your gift. We will be listing all honored Mother's and special people in you life on this Facebook page to thank them for everything they do and have done.

The Nest Center for Women, Children, and Families provides a safe place for education, counseling, and support to children and families in crisis. Our programs focus on the prevention of physical and sexual abuse and neglect of children and the stabilization of the family unit.

Our STARS-rated Child Care Program provides free, high quality full-time or respite child care for families in need. The Nest also offers the Self-Help Parent Program, a program designed to support families recovering from violence, abuse, and neglect, and to promote stronger family units and positive family communication.

Our Crisis Care Management Program assists families that are in need of emergency supplies, including food, toiletries, clothing, and cleaning supplies, and offers referrals for emergency financial and legal assistance.

Finally, The Nest offers individual and group counseling through our Domestic Violence Counseling and Support Program.
