What We Do
Our agency is specifically designed to provide services for individuals affected by domestic violence and their children. Our program offer emergency 24-hour hotlines, information and referrals, education, support groups, advocacy and accompaniment.
Our agency provides both residential and/or non-residential services. Residential services include access to emergency shelter or a safe dwelling should our shelter not be available, our location is kept confidential for safety purposes. As a shelter we provide residents with a bedroom, personal hygiene products, food, and clothing
as well as provide advocacy, support groups, give information and referrals as necessary or requested and provide emotional support to residents. We have staff available (24) hours a day at a shelter while there are residents in our shelter. Our crisis line is available and open 24 hours a day (7) days a week. We also provide non-residential services with all the above services requested by clients as well.
We are Certified Address Confidentiality Program Assistants (need help, call us).
“Seek out others who have been through some of the same experiences. Surround yourself with compassionate people who will uplift you and encourage you to keep moving forward in a positive direction.”
