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.
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.
