Your donation of any amount will help us to bring a residential housing shelter that will provide women and their children with:
Most people are not aware of the lack of residential shelters in St. Lucie County.
There are only a few shelters sprinkled throughout the community, however they are usually overnight placements for the homeless during severe weather, limited space and restrictions, or not ideal for women with children.
The newest edition to temporary placement in Saint Lucie County is a jail diversion program shelter for men and homeless male veterans.
There is only one Domestic Violence Shelter Serving our tri-county area and it is located in Martin County .
There is one 60 bed certified domestic violence shelter providing services for women and women with children that are victims of domestic violence from Indian River County, St. Lucie County and Martin County.
Women with children with no alternate living arrangement after leaving an domestic abuse shelter are at risk of becoming homeless!
This leaves a crucial gap in services to victims and their children in our community.
Victims without placement upon leaving shelter have an increased risk of returning back to their abuser .
If a victim of domestic violence is able to escape an abusive situation and obtain alternate placement in the domestic violence shelter this can and will save lives. However at the end of a 30 day stay in shelter the victim still does not have a place to go there is an increased risk of them returning back to their abusers or alternate unsafe living arrangement.
We are in need of a shelter here in St. Lucie County. Not only will the shelter benefit female victims of domestic abuse, it will also benefit women who have been impacted by various other hardships and are unable to find emergency housing for themselves and their children, which lead to an increase risk of homelessness.
