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.

ICNA Relief USA is not a treatment facility therefore we are unable to offer services to individuals who suffer from severe mental health conditions or those with physical mobility limitations which would inhibit them from participating in program requirements. We are a transitional facility and are unable to offer elder services or long term care due to our rigorous program requirements. There is an in-take process which includes interview and documentation. We are not an emergency shelter program and do not accept victims of domestic abuse due to safety concerns. ** We have one facility which caters to the unique needs of domestic abuse survivors at an undisclosed location in California.
