HAWCs shelter program is a short-term supportive environment designed to assist program participants and their children as they heal from the trauma of domestic violence.
The program is for individuals who are in current crisis and are at risk of being homeless due to domestic violence.
Their shelter program serves as a stepping stone in achieving the goals identified at the start.
The shelter is a communal living situation and at any given time they have folks of many nationalities, ethnicities, languages, sexual orientations, gender identities, and religions.
The aim of their shelter program is to aid individuals in constructing real and sustainable options for their future once they have moved on from their shelter.
Individuals staying in the shelter receive the support and advocacy from a Family Advocate who assists in the stabilization process and empowers them to achieve their self-determined goals.
Individuals participate in several weekly support groups that focus on domestic violence awareness, life skills, self-esteem, and parenting.
