Further Comments

The mission of The Dwelling Place is to protect families and heal lives affected by domestic abuse by providing safe housing, Christ-centered programs, training in life skills and community education. Women and their children may stay 12-18 months to receive healing, and acquire the necessary skills to achieve independent housing, a sustaining income, and violence free lives. We are a Christian ministry supported primarily by individuals and churches, and we endeavor to help all grow spiritually as they heal from the trauma of domestic abuse.
