History

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 the founding of Aurora House in 1985, a transitional housing program 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 on September 24, 1986 at its original site located on St. Clair Street.
