Casa Familia is St. Elizabeth’s dedicated emergency shelter for single women and families with children. It features five private family suites, two dormitory spaces with sixteen beds for single women, a large kitchen, dining room, outdoor patio and common areas. Guests at Casa Familia participate in life-skill training programs, case management, and group exercises to strengthen camaraderie. The facility can house over 30 people, and is a dramatic improvement from the one room for families and six beds for single women previously available.


Casa Familia provides a bright and warm atmosphere for single women and families desiring to regain a hold over their lives. Day in and day out the women and families at Casa Familia work with case management to restructure their lives, and build brighter futures for themselves. By adhering to policies and procedures similar to the Emergency Men’s Shelter, such as sobriety, guests at Casa Familia are able to live in an environment that promotes peace, hard work, and goal accomplishment. Walking into Casa Familia one will immediately feel the warm, supportive environment that has been established. Take a look for yourself at the address below.
