Our advocates will assist victims of DV/sexual assault through court procedures. We can also help you obtain protection orders for the safety of you and/or your children. Our advocates will offer referrals to affordable legal services when they are available.
You can call us year round and around the clock. Someone is always available to take your call. Due to our limited space, we ask that you call to have a telephone assessment to ensure that you are appropriate for our services. If space is available, we can only hold your space for 24 hours. If time exceeds 24 hours, you will need to call to ensure that the space is still available. We can also offer referrals to other shelters and programs.
