Shelter Services for Women

What kind of services does a shelter have to help battered women?

Shelters are not only four walls and a roof.  Once a bettered woman has dealt immediate issues of safety and survival, she begins to address her long-range and practical needs.  Women entering a domestic shelter have taken a courageous step to regain control over their lives to ensure safety for themselves and their children. 

The focus in the shelter is:

  • Stabilizing their lives
  • Helping understand their options
  • Increase their ability to achieve their goals
