OUR IMPACT

Our anonymous hotline is staffed 24/7, ready to respond to emergency calls from those seeking help.

We believe in meeting victims where they are, standing shoulder to shoulder as their advocates, helping them to find their own voices and dreams again.

It takes courage to leave everything behind and start over, fleeing a violent life in search of one filled with dignity and hope. 

Literally saved my life.

Everyone there is so nice and they are very helpful. They have great resources and I love what they do for our community.

The people who work there are the best people ... my life is so much better than it was before I stayed at the center.

Amazing staff. Helpful caring people. Loved the group meetings and the class 'Changing Patterns.'
