“I only knew you briefly (21 days), but what you have done will last a lifetime. You and the shelter were the bridge that carried me across to safety and a new life. I will think of you all as my blanket and hope to eventually be a volunteer and pass on your warmth and compassion. I thank you once . . . twice . . . a million times.”
The Women’s Center provides a safe and secure environment for victims of domestic and sexual violence.
The Center’s 13-bed shelter, Elizabeth House, offers refuge for women and children fleeing from the danger of violence in their own homes.
During their stay residents receive counseling, advocacy and assistance in rebuilding their lives and planning their future.
Shelter for men is provided at a separate, confidential location.
The Center provides a 24-hour hotline dedicated to domestic violence:
