DOMESTIC VIOLENCE SHELTER
ARE YOU UNSAFE IN YOUR OWN HOME?
Do you need a safe place for you and your children? You don't have to stay with your abuser. We can provide safe, secure shelter for women and children, as well as provide referrals for safe shelter at other facilities for male survivors.
Between July 1, 2013 and June 30, 2014, The Women’s Center provided 145 children and 849 adults a combined total of 6,060 nights of safe shelter and 9,898 hours of domestic violence services.
The Women's Center has operated continuously since its founding more than 40 years ago. Our staff of professionals and trained volunteers are dedicated to helping people regain control of their lives, their choices, and their futures.
One of the first domestic violence centers in the country, The Women's Center, Inc. was created in 1972 by a group of women who recognized the need for a safe, secure environment for southern Illinois women and their children.
We can help you too! You don't have to stay with your abuser. Make an escape plan.
