Center for Hope and Safety (formerly Shelter Our Sisters) has helped thousands of woman across Bergen County break their cycle of violence, and we can help you too. We have bi-lingual staff, or we will find someone to translate.
Change is possible. Your abuser may be a partner, spouse, or grown child.Right now you may feel alone and scared. It can be dangerous to stay and live in an abusive situation; it can also be dangerous to leave. We understand that you need a place to stay where you can feel safe and where you children will be safe. We can provide a safe haven for you to heal and rediscover the person you were before the abuse started.
Your biggest supporters
We will give you the strength to go through the stages of recovery and to get on your feet. We can assist with housing issues, job searches, some job training, and interview skills. We will be with you and assist you in getting a restraining order and navigating the legal system, should that be necessary.
