West Women's and Children's Shelter Project Report

West Women
West Women's and Children's Shelter

The generous support of globalgiving.org donors supported our emergency shelter services and allowed us to accomplish the following in 2012.

We offer 60 day emergency shelter stays to 8 survivors without children and 4 survivors with children as they work to stabilize after the domestic violence and gain stability.  As a team, we have received specific training regarding trauma informed care and have implemented practices in our approach to working with survivors.

Last year we served 

65 women without children

25 families

35 children

Reached 100% goal of safety planning with each emergency shelter resident

50% of participants exited into permanent housing

38% of participants exited into transitional housing

9% of participants exited into unknown living environments

3% of participants exited into other emergency shelter or other alcohol/drug or mental health treatment centers

We supported the birth of three babies born to mothers under the age of 21 over the past year in emergency shelter and they have all remained in the custody of their mothers.

We are grateful for the many donors who believe in the work we do, and a survivor's right to live a life free from violence.
