Friends Against Family Violence services are 100% free and 100% confidential for victims of Domestic Violence. Our current grant funding limits us to serving adults who have experienced Domestic Violence. We serve both men and women, along with their dependents, but typically cannot serve minors alone. If we are unable to provide you services, we will do our best to connect you to other resources in the community.
Shelter and Crisis Line
Our 24/7 crisis line and emergency shelter provides safety for individuals who need immediate support. We provide safety and action planning to all of our shelter clients. See below for more information about our shelter.
Community Based Advocacy
Our community-based advocates can meet with individuals who do not necessarily need shelter. They will provide the same type of safety and action planning as we provide in the shelter.
Our rapid rehousing model assists individuals leaving a DV situation to get into a new home. We use a step-down model where we pay a majority of rent in the early months and ease clients into taking on the full rent themselves.
We connect individuals to the resources that will help them reach their goals. We have relationships with many organizations in our community for things like therapy, job placement, legal support, and more.
STAYING IN OUR SHELTER
Our shelter provides a home away from home atmosphere with a shared kitchen space to make your own meals, living area spaces, and separate bedrooms for clients. Watch the video below to learn about our services and see the space inside the shelter.
