The average stay at the shelter is 60 days but we allow clients to stay for up to 90 days.  We offer housing referrals and assistance finding employment. We continue to provide advocacy and supportive services after survivors transition to more permanent housing for as long as they are in need.

Our facility provides private rooms for families that are set up as small suites with a kitchenette, beds and furniture.  We have additional adjoining rooms with beds that are linked for larger families.  We have a large community kitchen, an adult, teen, and children lounge, fenced and secure outdoor spaces with play sets, a basketball court, patios, outdoor furniture, barbeques and pet kennels.  We also have a food pantry, clothing bank and basic supplies including pet food and diapers.
