Domestic Violence Survivors

If you and/or your child are experiencing domestic violence, we are here to help. We have the experience and resources to get you to a safe place. 

We understand that making the choice to leave can be difficult. You can always visit us to get more information before you make a decision. Our contact cards are degradable in water, so you can safely destroy the evidence of our meeting. 

If you decide to leave an abusive situation, we offer a complete range of services to help get you out of harm’s way. 

Sheriff and Agency Liaison Services 

We will act as your liaison with the sheriff and local agencies to get you anything you may need, including restraining orders and stay-away orders. 

Once you come in, we will go to the Sheriff on your behalf. You can stay safely in our facility. The Sheriff will come in for an interview with you so we can get your process started. 

Child Protective Services and CASA Referrals

We work with these agencies to ensure the safety and representation of your child. 

CASA will act as an advocate for your child and can help you get restraining and stay-away orders to help protect them.

These agencies are here to help you and your child and keep you safe. 

Emergency Necessities

We understand that sometimes you need to leave in a hurry. We will make sure you have everything you need, including clothing, diapers, toothbrushes, etc. for you and your child. 


In an emergency situation, we will get you a hotel room in a discreet location so you can feel safe. We will help you relocate your car so that your location is not recognizable. 

For longer-term solutions, we work with local agencies to get you housing in a safe place that you can afford on your budget.

Counseling Referrals 

Survivors of domestic violence can experience many different kinds of mental and emotional distress. There are organizations and resources available to you that can help. 

We will refer you to the appropriate organization to get you the help you need. We will assist you in calling you and getting to your first appointment as well. We are here to support you however we can. 

Job Placements

We empower survivors to rebuild their lives through employment, enabling you to regain your confidence and independence.

To date, we have successfully placed four survivors in roles within our organization.

Recognizing the unique needs of survivors of domestic violence, we are committed to creating a working environment that offers the special considerations necessary for their well-being. We take great care to cultivate a safe and welcoming atmosphere in which our survivors can not only excel, but thrive. 

Helpful items to bring to your intake

We know that sometimes, it’s not possible to bring anything with you, and that is OK. We will take care of you no matter what. 

If you are able to plan ahead, it is very helpful to bring these things with you:

Car Pink Slip

Most importantly, bring the pink slip to your car if you have a car. We will assist you in trading in your car for a new one so that you can be less recognizable. 

Other items 

Bring your purse, car keys, credit cards, cash, and driver’s license. 

Coming soon- a new building with even more resources!
