Our mission is to empower those affected by domestic violence and sexual assault and to address the root causes of abuse in the community through education and advocacy


Our vision is a community that acts to help people live free of domestic violence and sexual assault

Our primary responsibility is to provide safe shelter 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for people who are in crisis as a result of domestic violence. The shelter is a home-like environment in a secured building. It offers a safe "timeout" for all family members and gives an opportunity to regain strength and control.  

Advocacy services are available to men, women, and children who are dealing with current and/or past abusive experiences. As an inclusive organization, we offer services to LGBTQ+ clients and clients with limited English language skills. Criminal justice, and legal, personal advocacy is also available during divorce or custody proceedings and in criminal cases related to domestic violence.  

To help build self-esteem, improve coping skills, and to offer an opportunity to speak with others who have had similar experiences, we offer self-help and support groups for women and children.
