We help secure transportation to the shelter and provide the basic things you need to live while you're staying at the shelter, including food, toiletries, baby supplies, and school supplies. Our shelter is secure and confidential, and we can help you get to another shelter if you are not safe in Abilene. All of our services are also available to non-resident clients who don't need to stay in the shelter.

What Should I Expect?

New Environment

It can be scary to call an unknown agency or move to an unfamiliar environment, so we hope that knowing a little bit about what to expect can make it easier.

Moving in to the Shelter

The first step in accessing our service is completion of an "Intake Packet". When you get to the shelter, an intake worker will sit down with you to complete the packet. Completing the packet typically takes about 30 minutes. The intake packet records information about you and your kids, documents the history of abuse, and is where you sign the agreements to receive services. After the intake packet is complete, the worker will give you a tour of the shelter, provide you with toiletries and bedding, and help you get settled in your room.

Life in the Shelter

There are several bedrooms in the shelter. We try to help as many individuals as possible, so families may have to share rooms. Each regular bedroom has 4 beds. Each handicap accessible room has at least two twin beds. We have portable baby cribs available for small children. Each bedroom has its own private bathroom, walk-in closet and personal storage

The Kitchen, dining room, playroom, and living room are common areas shared by all clients. Meals are provided in the shelter’s dining room. This is your home while you are here and we ask that you share in the responsibility of keeping the home clean.

This is an at will facility which means you will need to express the desire to be here and are free to come and go as you please. For safety reasons, we do have a curfew.

Child care is not provided on site, but we help find child care arrangements. We have a special room designated for teenagers while at the shelter. It is equipped with a television, books, etc. There is also a computer lab available for job searches, online classes, etc. For safety reasons we ask that you not use the computer for social media.

This is a secure location and we do our best to make sure you and your family are as safe as possible. We ask that you help us with this by not telling anyone where you are living. Family and friends who call can leave messages for you, but we will not confirm or deny that you are staying with us.

Your Advocate and Plan of Service

Your advocate is a Noah employee who helps you achieve your goals. Your advocate will work with you on a "Plan of Service" to help you achieve your goals. Your advocate can help you work with the legal system, work with other agencies, and access community resources.
Noah Project has an attorney on site. The attorney can assist only clients who are current clients of Noah Project and will help with:
  • Filing Protective Orders
  • Filing Crime Victims Compensation
  • Divorce
  • Child Custody
  • Housing issues

You don't have to live in the shelter to get help!

Noah Project is more than just a shelter. We also provide outreach services to help non-resident clients who don't need the safety of the shelter.
