Shelter

Safe Passage operates an emergency shelter program for adults and their children who need to flee abuse and get safe from violent and life-threatening domestic violence situations.

Our shelter is in a confidential location to help ensure safety and privacy for our guests.

Shelter life

Our shelter is staffed 24 hours per day. Shelter guests stay on average for one to three months. During their stay with us, shelter guests receive advocacy and assistance with housing, benefits, education, and employment. We provide for our guests' basic needs, including food, clothing, personal care items, and household supplies.

Our bright and welcoming shelter building has six bedrooms. Each bedroom houses one adult or family. Rooms vary in size and number of beds to accommodate families of all sizes. The entire house is wheelchair accessible and one first-floor bedroom is reserved exclusively for guests with physical disabilities.

Shared living space includes a homework/computer room, living room, playroom, large backyard, and large wheelchair-accessible kitchen with double appliances. Families are responsible for preparing their own meals, and household chores are shared among all guests.

Shelter guests also obtain other services provided by Safe Passage in our offices, including counselingsupport groups, children's services, and legal assistance.
