Volunteers play a crucial role in the delivery of Shelter programs and services. The Shelter is grateful to have a dedicated group of volunteers who give freely of their time and energy to help the women, children, and men we serve each day. Volunteers work tirelessly to ensure our crisis hotline is staffed 24-hours a day, children are given guided play sessions while their mothers meet with case managers and attend support groups, offer translation services, provide administrative assistance for our office staff, and help organize community activities and fundraising events.
Mission Statement: Working to end domestic violence in our community.
Since 1979, the Shelter for Help in Emergency has worked to support and empower victims of domestic/intimate partner violence through a combination of trauma-informed residential and community-based outreach services, including a 24-hour hotline, emergency shelter, safety planning, information and referral, resource assistance, legal advocacy and court accompaniment, supportive counseling, outreach to the Spanish-speaking community, and programs for children and youth.
