Our Mission

To shelter, comfort, encourage and empower homeless abused children and their mothers to live stable, violence-freelives--to break the cycle of child abuse. To educate, inform and connect diverse, disenfranchised communities to resources that improve their economic condition and overall quality of life.

Our History

The Eli Home started in 1983 as a home bible study group in Mike and Lorri Galloway’s living room. This was the beginning of a passion that would drive a lifetime. Soon family, friends and volunteer professionals shared the dream and the first shelter for abused children and their mothers opened 18 months later.

Today the Eli Home is a multi-faceted faith based organization that provides services for over 1,000 abused children and their mothers, at risk youth, and families each year. The Eli Home now operates shelter homes, a 13,000 square foot discount store social enterprise, corporate offices, community room, and counseling offices.  Eli’s professional counseling and therapy staff and organizational staff works from its corporate location in Anaheim, California.

The foundation of Eli is built on hearts of service, from the board, to the staff, and to its volunteers. Through the years, our focus has never wavered in sheltering abused children and working to prevent family violence.  The journey has never been easy, but it has been joyful.  To this day, we still struggle with having enough money to cover all of our needs, yet and still, our hearts are willing, our hands are busy, and our faith rings louder than our fears.

Eli Home was named after “Eli”
the Aramaic word for God, so
Eli Home is God’s Home.
