When you experience interpersonal violence due to domestic abuse, sexual assault, stalking or other interpersonal crime, finding a safe place to go and feeling safe again is a first step.
24/7 crisis intervention
Trained advocates are on-call every hour of every day to be there when you need them. They can support you with:
- Safety planning
- Emergency shelter placement
- Connections to law enforcement and/or medical support, accompanying you if desired
At our 36-bed emergency shelter, Mary’s Place, you will find a safe place to stay, allowing you to take the next steps towards a life that is free from violence. While our goal is to help you attain a new, safe permanent home as quickly as possible, we do not limit the time you can stay at our shelter.
Medically required service animals are welcome to accompany you to shelter. All other animals can be considered for foster placement with our partnership through Circle of Friends.
Protection and restraining orders
For some, a protection or restraining order may be appropriate. Our trained staff will assist you in applying for a court order that restricts your abuser’s contact with you. We will help you complete the paperwork needed and step you through the process, providing legal and emotional support services.
