Shelter for battered women and their minor children
Provides a multi-disciplinary team of professionals working together, under one roof to effectively respond to domestic violence. The core concept is to provide one place where victims can go to talk to an advocate, plan for their safety, interview with a police officer, meet with a prosecutor, receive legal assistance, and receive information on the shelter.
