Our emergency shelter is located at an undisclosed site. We welcome anyone regardless of of race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, faith, ability, or economic status who is fleeing imminent danger from family and intimate partner violence, human trafficking or abuse in later life.
The welcoming environment provides 24/7 assistance for non-offending parents and their children in an ADA-compliant facility, which houses up to 31 adults and children nightly. Clients in our shelter are offered a client-centered program, including crisis intervention, safety planning, counseling, case management, legal advocacy, and community referrals to support basic needs, healing, and progress toward economic and personal goals. We also assist clients in applying for community transitional housing programs.
The Extended Shelter Stay Program can offer a longer stay for the rare cases where obstacles prevent survivors from obtaining employment, identity papers, legal resolution and/or affordable housing.
