Emergency Shelter Services
Victims of domestic violence and their children may stay in one of our three 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 additionally participate in counseling and support groups while living in the shelter.
Here are some examples of our emergency shelter apartments in Lompoc and Santa Barbara:
Transitional Housing Services
Our transitional housing program (also called Second Stage housing) is for victims who have met their goals during their stay at the emergency shelter. Residents and their children may stay for up to 18 months in one-bedroom apartments, while receiving group and individual counseling, among other services.
Second Stage is designed to allow survivors of domestic violence to make long-term positive changes for themselves and for their children.
