How we help
How Do We Help?
We provide a temporary place for women and their battered children if they have no other place to go.
- We give battered women time to heal, rest, and consider their options.
- We care about battered women and suggest alternatives to the violence they live with.
- We help battered women understand about domestic violence.
- We understand that battered women feel powerless and try to help then regain control over their lives.
- We refer women to other agencies for help i.e. medical, legal, and social services.
- We have support groups open to all victims on Tuesday nights from 6:00-7:00, call us for details and directions to the shelter.
All services are strictly confidential and provided only upon request of the woman. We do not respond to inquiries about women or share information about them without their permission.
