When people think of a shelter, typically they think of a barracks or lots of bunks in a gym!
But their safe house is a beautiful, fully furnished home tucked away in a secluded area with lots of trees and a garden to boot!
The Center’s emergency shelter is located in Placerville, California on a 1.98-acre lot in a confidential location.
The shelter is 3,068 square feet with a 13-bed capacity divided into five (5) family units.
The Center has operated a domestic violence shelter since 1985 and has provided over 37,000 nights of shelter to victims and their children.
The shelter itself is in close proximity to the counseling offices, their community partners and the courts.
The emergency shelter residents are homeless victims of domestic violence who have fled a dangerous situation often with their children.
Twenty-four percent are also victims of sexual assault and 60% of shelter residents have minor children with them at the shelter.
