Statement of Purpose

This organization is focused on promoting the Health, Safety, Rights to the victims of family violence, and to promote the education of the community by:

Providing 24-hour emergency crisis intervention, temporary emergency shelter, food, clothing and support services to victims of family violence.

Providing transitional housing to promote an independent and productive lifestyle to victims of domestic violence and their children.

Providing community awareness to the prevalent incidents of family violence through education and training programs.


"EVERY DOMESTIC VIOLENCE VICTIM SHOULD HAVE ACCESS TO THE

LIFESAVING SERVICES OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE SHELTERS, SERVICES, AND

PROGRAMS. TURNING AWAY SURVIVORS AND THEIR CHILDREN CAN MEAN

SENDING THEM BACK INTO VIOLENT AND DANGEROUS SITUATIONS, FORCING

THEM TO CONFRONT THE CHALLENGES OF HOMELESSNESS OR PREVENTING

THEM FROM GAINING ACCESS TO LEGAL OR MEDICAL RESOURCES. IT IS

DEVASTATING TO SEE SHELTERS NATIONWIDE SAYING "NO" BECAUSE THEY

SIMPLY LACK THE RESOURCES."
