About Naree Center
Naree is a Thai word meaning woman. By reaching out to women, we hope to equip them to cultivate healthy families and communities.
Naree began as a branch of The Well to provide special care in a smaller, personalized setting. Naree trains women in work skills, life skills, and applying Biblical principles to their life.
Naree offers both housing and employment. At the center, some women learn skills such as sewing, making jewelry, or housekeeping. When possible, we connect women with employers in the area including working as maids, clerks, restaurant servers or cooks, security guards, and other odd jobs.
Family is an important part of the ministry also, as many women have children and some have husbands.
