Emily’s Place provides long-term housing that is critical for helping domestic violence survivors permanently escape abuse. It is the “bridge” from a shelter, which typically allows women a safe place for 30 to 90 days, to independent living, free of the barriers preventing them from achieving self-sufficiency away from their abusers. The mission is to break the cycle of abuse through transformational care that seeks to restore faith, hope, and health.
In general, ongoing needs for Emily’s Place (Requires volunteer application, training, and a background check):
