Safe Dwelling/Shelter Programs

Ohel maintains a network of safe dwellings/shelters in New York City, offering kosher accommodations for a woman and her children. Addresses remain confidential and apartments are furnished with all the amenities of a private home.

By providing a safe and secure home environment, together with caring and professional support, women struggling with serious domestic violence or abuse have been able to rebuild their lives so that their families can thrive.
