Shelter & Transitional Housing

The court system is a difficult process that you do not have to go through alone, and the process itself is worth the time to get you (or someone you know) the freedom from a former abusive partner. Our trained court advocates provide initial help and support needed to begin the legal process. Click Here for the Court Advocacy Brochure.

We offer two support group programs for those who have experienced intimate partner violence: currently in the situation, have recently left, or experienced abuse in the past. Our support groups meet every Tuesday from 6:00- 7:30pm at our main office, 1950 Martin Street in Burlington. Attendees are encouraged to arrive by 5:45pm as programming starts promptly at 6:00pm. Both the English-speaking and Spanish-speaking groups focus on peer support, domestic violence education, and skill-building exercises. Free childcare is provided.
El grupo se lleva a cabo todos los Martes de 6:00 p.m. a 7:30 p.m. Ofrecemos cuidado de niños.
