Women's Shelter provides safety and advocacy services to victims of domestic abuse and to their children. Services are free 24/7.
Women's Shelter, organized in 1976, began as a grassroots organization to offer safety and advocacy services to victims of domestic abuse and to their children. Women's Shelter's goal is to reduce domestic violence by offering alternative housing, reducing barriers to violence free living, educating the public about difficulties facing victims, and preventing future violence by working with the children.
Women's Shelter's services include a 24-hour crisis line, safe shelter, legal and general advocacy, support groups, children's programming, transitional housing for homeless women and children, children's school (K-5), multi-culture staff and services, special services to immigrant and refugee battered women and their children.
