We support clients in taking all necessary steps to break old patterns, seek safety, and build a meaningful life free of violence.

Shelter Services are provided through our two emergency shelters and two long-term shelter programs confidentially located in San Diego County. Shelters provide safe housing for adults and children escaping violence. All residents may choose to access a spectrum of wrap-around services.
