The Shelter Program

Women and children may stay in one of our 3 confidential emergency shelters for up to 45 days, where they receive emotional support, food, clothing, goal planning assistance, advocacy for medical, legal and financial resources, information and referrals. Residents and children participate in counseling and nightly support groups.

If you are questioning something that is happening to you,
