Helping Hands

A small shelter with a big vision

As a shelter with limited space - just six beds - the scope of our vision exceeds our actual size. By also focusing on outreach and education,  we contribute to the efforts of others to shape the narrative about violence against women in the hope of eliminating it in our community.
