Mission & Objectives:

ICNA Relief USA offers an alternative for homeless women in need of temporary housing. ICNA Relief maintains the dignity of residents while affording them the opportunity to heal and develop themselves within a nurturing environment. Women are provided with one-on-one support while they transition to permanent stable housing.

Many of the women who come to ICNA Relief for supportive housing have experienced emotional abuse as well as neglect and are underemployed or unable to obtain affordable housing. ICNA Relief offers them the opportunity to heal while they work towards obtaining the ultimate goal of self sufficiency.

Trained case managers work with residents in identifying areas of growth and link them to appropriate community resources such as public benefits, legal and immigration support, mental health services and healthcare. While residing at ICNA Relief, women are encouraged to take part in educational classes including; English language skills, job training and/or higher education.
