Domestic Violence

here is how we can help

1. Restore.
2. Support.


The Beacon offers free supportive services to aid in recovery, healing and justice for victims of interpersonal violence. It is the rebranding of our domestic violence program of the Center for Violence Prevention which has been providing emergency shelter and support services to victims since 1990. This issue effects the entire family unit and often displaces victims and their children, often resulting in homelessness and further victimization. Services are offered to support the recovery and stabilization of victims and children caught up in the cycle of abuse.

Every person has the right to a life free from violence.  If you feel that you are in a violent relationship, take the first step toward a violent-free life by contacting us.  We can assist with emergency shelter, an exit safety plan, law enforcement advocacy, therapy for you and your children, case management, and other resources and referrals that can help along the way.
