This may be one of the most delicate areas in our mission as it rings very close to home to the experiences of our Founder. Victims of domestic violence should have a safe and private place to reside. It shouldn’t consist of a mere mattress, bathroom stall and four walls. It should feel like a better place than what they have once called “Home”.
We want to ensure that this specific group of individuals possess all within this community that will grant them safety and comfort. By providing resources such as educational programs, secured health checkups and other essentials, this will reduce the risk of them compromising themselves to aggressors and privacy of other residents when having to leave the premises.
We recognized that we may not be able to provide everything on-site therefore residents are given the option for escorts when needed. Assistance is provided to our residents in obtaining order of protections and other safety measures necessary to separate them from their aggressors.
We also provide self-defense courses by professional instructors to teach our survivors techniques they can utilize should they be confronted by their aggressors.
