The Domestic Abuse Shelters are temporary shelters offering women and children up to 90 days of a safe haven when fleeing from domestic violence. The shelter offers basic needs (food, clothing etc.), counseling support and services for children. During this temporary stay, they learn dynamics of domestic violence and how to develop a safety plan.
The locations of our shelters are confidential. If you are in need of domestic abuse help, please call our Domestic Abuse Hotlines. If you would like general information on the shelters, please call the main Child & Family Service line: 808.681.3500
