Friendship Home exists to support, shelter and advocate for victims of domestic violence and their children.

Friendship Home Seeks To:

Provide a continuum of safe, confidential shelter options-from emergency shelter through transitional shelter.

Provide a rich array of crisis intervention services, case management and emotional support to those we shelter as well as those who are waiting for shelter; helping them to rebuild their lives, free from fear.

Address the many complexities and barriers associated with domestic violence and sexual assault on an individual level as well as a community systems level.

Continue to reach out to survivors through individual advocacy, emergency case management and support groups after they leave shelter, offering an environment where survivors feel welcome and are encouraged to share their stories and their wisdom with others.
