Arulagam is a home for destitute women and their children. The women come from abusive marriages, prison, widowhood, or may be victims of HIV/AIDS and the stigmatization that often follows it. At Arulagam these women are given a home, counseling, education, skills training and loving care. Their children are cared for as well. When and if the women become ready, with emotional fortitude and self sufficiency skills, to leave the home and to support themselves in the community, they are assisted with the transition.
