Safe Housing

  • Emergency, Short-Term and Long-Term Housing: immediate housing and safety for victims of domestic and sexual violence and their children.  Violence Free Futures can provide shelter for up to 32 clients.  All personal amenities are provided while in the housing program including food, transportation, case management and goal planning, child care for scheduled appointments and access to other agency programs. Families remain in shelter for a transitional period determined on a case by case basis.  This facility provides additional counseling space for residential and outreach clients needing services, as well as, a commercial kitchen, a fenced in play area for the children, a secured site, and a state of the art security system. The facility is fully handicapped accessible. As of June 2022, we will include household pets in the safety plan with survivors. Our shelter is pet-friendly if there is space available. Your advocates will explain the pet-friendly program structure. Two companion animals (pets) will be considered per family, if the space is available. If the space is not available, other plans will be discussed, including potential for family to temporarily care for them, possible foster programs or kenneling. A list of items to bring for the pets will also be covered.
