What is a Domestic Violence Shelter?

Domestic violence shelters are safe places where domestic violence and abuse victims can get help and housing. Because many domestic violence victims can become homeless, shelters for domestic abuse victims are important resources.

How does a Domestic Violence Shelter Help Abuse Victims?

Domestic violence shelters provide victims of abuse and their children/families with both emergency shelter and long-term residences. This gives victims of abuse time to recover and rebuild their lives.

Safe Horizon’s domestic violence shelters offer comprehensive programs that include:

  • Counseling
  • Housing assistance
  • Employment assistance
  • Help building life skills
  • Legal services
  • Childcare
