Women’s Shelters

SCO’s Madonna Heights provides emergency housing for women who are experiencing homelessness, some with children. The primary goal of the Madonna Heights’ shelters is to help women and their families stabilize their lives by providing them with temporary emergency housing and support services in a safe, supervised environment. Locations are throughout Suffolk County, Long Island. The program also meets needs for clothing, access to medical care, limited transportation, case management services and assistance in locating permanent housing. Parenting Skills Training is also provided.
