It is a difficult decision to leave home and live in a Shelter.
Women and their children come to Shelter because their homes are not safe.
During their time in Shelter, there are two main goals.
First, to begin to recover from the violence they have experienced.
Second, to move forward in rebuilding their lives.
There is a lot of work to do both emotionally and practically.
For women interested in learning more about the process of coming to stay, they should call their 24-hour hotline to talk about what it means to come to Shelter.
Theyll talk about living in a community and the rules and responsibilities of living in the Shelter.
