Guardian Angel Family Crisis Center is Here to Help
Women and children in need are the most vulnerable among us. Guardian Angel Family offers practical help, from food and clothing needs to help navigating government agencies, including housing, health care and services for battered women. We counsel, console, encourage and assist. We also run a local thrift store where women and children know they can come for shelter and clothing for immediate assistance. Beyond meeting food and shelter needs, Guardian Angel Family brings life changing solutions to women and families in trouble by teaching problem-solving and parenting skills which restore confidence and assures families they no longer need to struggle alone.
- Nassau County does not provide enough transitional housing for women in crisis situations.

- Increasing numbers of women and their children are in crisis in Nassau County.
- Although social services abound in New York, without housing and a stable environment for their minor children, many women in crisis are unable to take full advantage of such services.
- Women in crisis are often forced to place their children in foster care.
- Studies suggest that children in foster care risk perpetuating the cycle of homelessness and neglect.
- Recent studies indicate that women who maintain contact with their families while obtaining services succeed better at reestablishing their lives and place in society.

As we steadfastly approached homelessness and despair it was through working with The Guardian Angel Family supportive staff and receiving emergency help that allowed us to escape what I feared most for my family. No food, no shelter. Today my two children and I can honestly say we believe in miracles as we have experienced one first hand. One that has changed our lives and has given us stability to continue to stay and grow in our community.
