Shelter 100 families escaping domestic violence



This project will provide safe, confidential shelter and vital advocacy services for women and children escaping violent relationships in Portland, Oregon.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Domestic violence is a pattern of coercive tactics that can include physical, psychological, sexual, economic, and emotional abuse, perpetrated by one person against an intimate partner, with the goal of establishing and maintaining power and control. Domestic violence is a crime, and it occurs every 15 to 18 seconds in the United States. 75% of women who are murdered in this country are murdered by an intimate partner.

How will this project solve this problem?

Our emergency shelter serves individuals and families of all backgrounds, cultures, ages, and sexual orientations, offering shelter, food, clothing, advocacy, resource referral and other vital services to survivors of violence and their children.

Potential Long Term Impact

Each year we will offer shelter and advocacy to approximately 100 local families escaping violence. These families will be assisted with a full spectrum of advocacy and resources on their individual journeys toward self-sufficiency.
