WELCOME TO THE AURORA HOUSE
Aurora Project, Inc. is a comprehensive housing and life skills program that empowers homeless women and their children to achieve self sufficiency and independence by providing resources and learning opportunities in a supportive and safe environment.
All women and their children will reach their full potential as contributing members of a healthy community.
In 1984, a Task Force of Community Women met to address the needs of homeless women and children. The result of this effort was in 1985 with the founding of Aurora House a transitional housing shelter for homeless women and children; specifically women who were dealing with chemical addictions. Sister Dorothy Nussbaum was named the 1st Executive Director and Aurora House opened at its original site located on St. Clair Street on September 24, 1986.
We are in the process of building our new website so as you browse through, you may find some pages missing or incomplete. We soon hope to have all of the information available to you.
