Domestic Violence Shelter
YWCA offers safe and confidential housing for women and families who are experiencing domestic violence (DV). This is a short-term emergency shelter program for women and children only.
Residents will have their own room and meet regularly with a DV advocate to address barriers to stable housing and access wrap-around support services.
This is a multi-racial, multi-ethnic shelter with residents from different cultures, races, religions, and sexual orientations. Female survivors are welcomed, as well as transgender and gender non-conforming individuals.
Services for male survivors of DV are available (such as motel vouchers and other housing assistance), however, men are not housed at these shelter facilities.
If you are not experiencing domestic violence and need emergency shelter or housing assistance, please contact 2-1-1 or your referral agency.
YWCA's emergency shelter for survivors of domestic violence is open to women 18-years and older, as well as their minor children. Males older than 17-years may not stay at these facilities.
