The Naomi Project
Allowed to grow where planted.
We are a 501c3 nonprofit organization.
It is the mission of The Naomi Project to change the lives of families experiencing domestic abuse after making the choice not to return to their abusers. We were uniquely created to address the devastation of domestic abuse that contributes to the deterioration of the social fabric in families living and working in the Pee Dee Area of South Carolina.
Domestic Abuse has become an ever-growing problem in the framework of the American family. It is our purpose to answer the call of hurting homeless victims and provide them a safe-haven, where they will not only heal but recover and flourish. The Naomi Project provides victims and their children with long-term housing that is safe and void of verbal, physical, psychological and sexual abuse. In addition, The Naomi Project seeks to help victims develop independence through emotional and psychological healing and obtaining educational and financial stability.
Community Education Outreach
The Naomi Project is committed to educating the community about abuse. We are available for workshops, health fairs, and presentations at schools, churches, and social clubs. Please contact us if you are interested in having someone speak to your group.
If you are a victim of domestic abuse or would like to help us with our mission and goal of helping those affected by domestic abuse, please investigate this website further and/or contact us via e-mail or phone.
Thank you for your interest in the Naomi Project.
