Our emergency shelters offer temporary housing to survivors and their children fleeing life-threatening situations. Clients can stay in the emergency shelters for up to 90 days and the locations of the shelters remain strictly confidential to ensure the safety of those living in the shelters. Children living in the shelters are enrolled in schools nearby or may attend their home school if it is safe to do so. Male victims and their children (if any) are given shelter at a local hotel and provided with the same services.
Along with our Shelter services, clients also receive Case Management services from our experienced case managers. Our Case Management services range from providing basic needs such as food, sundries, clothing and school supplies, to more advanced needs such as education for budgeting, building resumes, job searches and job acquisition.

Clients receiving shelter may be eligible to participate in our Housing Program. The main goal of the program is to enable clients to stay in a home and live self-sufficiently once they have completed the program. Our Housing Program is funded through HUD to provide homeless domestic violence victims with rental assistance for up to two years.
Our Community Educators visit local businesses, organizations, community groups, schools and youth groups to educate members of our community on the dynamics of abuse and healthy relationships.
