Shelter & Healing

Shelter and Facilities

Women’s Advocates creates a path to healing and self-determination for individuals leaving abusive relationships. On average, Women’s Advocates provides secure emergency shelter and access to basic needs for up to 50 victim/survivors and their children daily.

When an individual or family arrives at our shelter, they have a safe place to stay while receiving on-site support to resolve immediate crises, health concerns, legal issues, economic problems, and improve their overall well-being.
