The Moriah House Women and Children’s Shelter accepts single women and women with children who are homeless, have resided in substandard living conditions, or are victims of domestic violence.

These women are challenged with issues of economic hardship, physical and emotional trauma, chemical dependency, mental illness, physical illness, lack of education, or lack of employment.  All residents meet Ohio’s guidelines for extremely low or low income levels with over 90% in the extremely low-income category.

Moriah House provides a full range of transitional services that assist residents in moving from homelessness to stable housing and employment through these basic programs:

  • Interim housing provides a safe and nurturing place to live, meals, and all other basic necessities.
  • Case management services enable each woman to work directly with skilled staff to develop her individualized plan for permanent housing, stable income, self-sufficiency, and education/training.
  • Family Services staff work with the children and their mothers to address each child’s unique mental, physical, social, and educational needs.  Trauma-specific interventions are coordinated with other social service agencies, medical professionals and educators.
