Our RISE program is a residential follow-up program designed to support those women and children in need of long-term support. While many women come to Nova House for short-term support, others may have less opportunity and access to external supports. The RISE Program at Nova House provides longer-term transitional housing and programming to help and support women learning how to live a life free from abuse. 

The RISE program is aimed towards assisting women by providing a wide range of  support services, build life skills and programming that includes life coaching.  Our programs encourage independence, self-esteem,  and help to build confidence. We also provide workshops and training toward a better education, job development, and self-sufficiency. 

Services our RISE Program offers:

  • Childcare
