Our Mission

We assist homeless families in making the transition from homelessness to self-sufficiency in a structured but home-like environment.  Nicholas House is committed to assisting its families attain three goals that form the basis of self-sufficiency.
 
               1.  Earn a Living Wage.
               2.  Maintain the Physical, Mental and Social Health of the Family.
               3.  Maintain Safe and Stable Housing.
 
Nicholas House understands that providing basic subsistence – food and shelter – is necessary but not sufficient to prevent most homeless families from becoming homeless again.

Introducing the I AM Campaign

Busting the myths surrounding homelessness...

The term "homelessness" comes with a lot of baggage and stigma surrounding it. The myths associated with homelessness are a detriment to the homeless community and keep society from juding the community. We noticed these myths and decided to do something about it. With our "I Am" campaign, we gave the families of Nicholas House an opportunity to break down the myths of their lives. Hopefully this campaign
But let our participants speak for themselves.

Addressing the Root Causes and Keeping Families Intact

We help families address the causes of their homelessness by offering shelter, counseling, case management, assistance with life skills and parenting and other supportive services targeted to each family's individual needs. Families are eligible to participate in NHI programs for up to one year. After they graduate, they are offered an additional two years of Aftercare Services so that they can cement the gains they made while in the program and maintain their self-sufficient lifestyle.

Because most shelters are gender-specific, serving only men or women and their children, homelessness often separates family members from each other, often times with devastating consequences.
By accepting the entire family, Nicholas House helps keep families together.

Even though it's not much, I really hope I can help to make some families in need smile a bit brighter.
