The Safe House provides emergency shelter for women and their families for up to 60 days. Staffed 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, the Safe House is often the second point of contact, after the emergency hotline, for clients accessing agency programs and services. Once a client has entered the Safe House, they are also provided support through the other agency services such as individual and group counseling and legal advocacy.
Our safe house is warm and inviting but most importantly, safe. Women and children have access to comfortable communal living with bedrooms, kitchen, living room and a playroom. It is here that healing can begin. Women can continue with their activities of daily living such as taking care of their children, preparing meals and working. The Safe House staff is on hand 24 hours a day to assist with these activities as well as connecting women and their children with housing and various other resources in the community.
Emergent safe housing for male victims of domestic and/or sexual violence is also available within limits.
