The Partnership’s Family Violence Center provides immediate shelter to individuals and their children who are victims of family violence. The Family Violence Center offers support to individuals by providing a safe environment. The location of the shelter is confidential. The shelter’s living quarters consist of dormitory style rooms with a communal kitchen, bathroom and living room. The Family Violence Center understands that the victim cannot bring all personal items with them so food, personal items, and linens are provided. The staff also recognizes and attends to the physical, emotional and educational needs of the children involved. Family Violence Center staff work diligently to educate the general public, law enforcement, and all organizations about family violence issues and encourages their support.
