The shelter offers residents a safe and updated facility where they can begin the difficult work of rebuilding their lives, free of home violence and abuse.

Shelter Services
On an on-going basis, our staff work with victims and their children to help them assess their options, create a safety plan, and help them find and secure safe, affordable housing.  This necessitates aiding these survivors in creating self-trust and self-confidence as they work to rebuild a future for themselves and their children without violence or abuse.

Services include counseling for victims and their children, as well as linkage to our network of providers to address the individual needs of each resident.
