About Us




We help victims with orders of protection and make referrals to legal aids and other agencies that will help them with the legal issues.

Individual Therapy

Designed for Children, Victims and Perpetrators, individual therapy sessions help the person explore the choices they have made and are given options and insight to new choices that will take them to live violence-free lives.

Group Therapy

In group therapy people learn from each other through sharing experiences, and are guided by a facilitator to understand the importance of identifying patterns of behaviors that they themselves or their partners can exhibit so that they can make good choices in time that will start creating a violence-free environment for their family.

Emergency Shelter

The emergency Shelter is available 24 hr a day 7 days a week. It is designated for victims in dangerous situations. It is a place where they are provided with free food, shelter and education about making the correct choices to start the path for a better future.

All our services are bilingual.

All our services are free with the exception of court mandated therapy.
