Shelter for the Youth and the People Who Suffer from Domestic Violence

We offer the following services, free of charge, to all victims of domestic violence. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, gender expression, age, national origin, disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status, in any of our activities or operations, we strive to ensure that all victims are provided with a safe and welcoming environment.

We provide a safe place and emotional support for victims of domestic violence while they are in the process of transitioning into a life free of abuse.

We are open 24/7 and offer the following services at our organization:

  • Access to a 24-hour crisis line
  • Safe shelters during emergencies. Our emergency shelter is at an undisclosed location so individuals escaping a dangerous relationship can feel safe and confident that their abuser will not find them. We provide housing for victims and their families to help them get back on their feet.
  • Counseling. Our counseling services are available at our shelter as well as through our office. Whether it is for an individual, a teen, or a parent and their children, we provide professional counseling services to help them cope and to let them know that they are not alone in their journey toward healing from abuse. We also offer a Friends and Family Group for those who have a loved one experiencing domestic violence.
  • Legal Services. Navigating the legal process can feel intimidating for anyone, but particularly for individuals who have experienced violence in their relationship. Our legal team provides a variety of services including direct representation, advisement on how you can litigate your case yourself, and connecting you with an attorney through our network of pro bono community attorneys.
