Safe shelter nights per year
Each year, Peace at Home provides over 4,000 shelter nights to individuals families seeking safety from family violence, sexual assault, stalking or human trafficking.
Our emergency shelter has been a core program since 1978. The typical stay for people living in shelter is a month, sometimes much less, sometimes more. The shelter is a safe place that provides support and information about where to go next. We also have a small animal shelter at the facility so you can bring your animals.
