Shelter

All services are available for women, children, and men, and are FREE and CONFIDENTIAL.

Our Safe House/Shelter provides shelter for single women and women with children in a communal living environment. We offer a safe, abuse and violence free living environment where you may access options:  counseling, employment opportunities, housing information and individual advocacy, comfort and security where you can explore your options for approximately 30 days.

The Shelter location is confidential and secure.

Often for the first time, women and the children staying in our Shelter are exposed to a living situation free from violence. Children learn by example that one can live without violence, which can help break the cycle of violence. Staff model non-violent behavior and encourage adults to use non-violent parenting alternatives with their children and non-violent conflict resolution with other shelter residents.

Women’s Resources offers services to anyone who is a victim of abuse. Male victims are encouraged to call our hotline to learn how Women’s Resources can help them access safe accommodations.

To access our Shelter you must call our 24-hour hotline at 570-421-4200.
