Emergency Shelter

The Eagle’s Nest Shelter is a safe and confidential emergency shelter for women and children who have experienced trauma from domestic violence, sexual assault and dating violence.

All services at the shelter are free for clients and include a wide range of support services. This program provides basic housing needs like meals and snacks, clothing, personal hygiene supplies and laundry facilities.

While Women of Nations is a Native American culturally-focused organization, all are welcome at our shelter and to utilize our services.
