The Eli Home is an Anaheim, CA based nonprofit organization that has focused on breaking the cycle of child abuse and family violence for over thirty-two years. Our Mission is to welcome, shelter, comfort, heal, encourage and strengthen victims of child abuse and neglect, and to prepare them to reenter the community to lead stable, non-violent lives, free from fear and intimidation - to break the cycle of child abuse.
"Eli", simply translated, is the Aramaic word for God, so Eli Home is God’s Home.
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 a year. The Eli Home now operates 2 shelter homes, a 13,000 square foot discount store social enterprise, corporate offices, Eli’s professional counseling and therapy staff, and organizational staff. Dedicated volunteers and board members support the mission. The Eli Home has a history of awards and accolades that include citations from U.S. Presidents George Bush and Bill Clinton.
