Women’s Wellness Center includes Noel House Programs. Noel House Programs provides shelter and related services for homeless women in several locations. Women’s Wellness Center is a small hygiene center that provides showers, laundry, and hygiene supplies at no cost to women experiencing homelessness. What we are best known for is our spa-like atmosphere and simple comforts, such as hot coffee and snacks; a phone and a place to sit; time and space to organize one’s belongings and thoughts; a safe escape from the outside world; and a sense of welcoming community. It is our mission to provide a safe and peaceful environment where homeless women can take care of their hygiene needs, while being treated with dignity and respect. Many clients have chronic and acute mental illness, addiction issues, and/or trauma. WWC/NHP serves women of all ages (over 18 years) and ethnic backgrounds. Wellness Coordinators are responsible for managing the front desk and lobby of WWC, providing direct service to the women, and fostering a team environment among shelter staff and volunteers.
