At Friendship Home we understand that leaving may not end an abusive partner’s violence. In fact, an abusive situation often escalates when a victim attempts to leave the situation.
Friendship Home provides safe, secure, and confidential shelter options for victims and their children at this critical moment. Trauma-informed shelter options include communal shelter and single-family apartments. During a shelter stay, advocates and case managers work alongside victims and empower them to reach their goals.
Domestic violence impacts all family members. Through one-on-one advocacy and support groups, children’s advocates focus on the youngest victims that we serve. From newborn infants to youth, all children who enter our doors are provided a safe place to share their experiences and begin to heal.
