The Retreat's Non-Residential services include a 24-Hour Hotline, Legal Advocacy, Counseling, Support Groups, Police Department Incident Report Response, Information and Referrals, Community Education/Outreach, Crime Victim's Assistance, In-School Education/Prevention Programs, a Batterers Intervention Program, and a Self-Sufficiency Program. The Retreat's 18 bed shelter is staffed around the clock for access at all times. It provides housing for women and their children for up to 90 days. Services at the shelter include legal advocacy, personal advocacy with regard to financial, housing, medical needs, transportation, child care, group and individual counseling, and a variety of ancillary programs such as nutrition, yoga, parenting, and enrichment programs for the children. The Retreat provides more than 15,000 services each year. Each year the Retreat solicits all levels of government to support our programs, and unfortunately each year the funding is cut. To supplement these cuts, the Retreat solicits a variety of foundations that support domestic violence causes. The Retreat also does a tremendous amount of fundraising which accounts for approximately 1/3rd of the annual budget.
Individual and group counseling is provided for adults and children. Clients take control of their lives, make positive changes without guilt and begin to heal. Group counseling combines education about abuse with mutual support.
Trained legal advocates accompany victims to court, explain the legal process, and assist in obtaining orders of protection, stay away orders and custody.
In-school education programs effectively help children and teenagers build self-esteem while enabling them to identify and understand how to deal with problem situations. We educate the community via workshops and presentations about domestic violence.
Telephone crisis intervention is available 24 hours per day. Staff and trained volunteers link callers to the shelter, outreach services, police, and emergency health services, while providing supportive listening, basic information, and referrals.
The emergency shelter provides housing for 18 adults and children for an up to 90-day length of stay. Services available at the shelter include counseling, legal advocacy, education, and case management, among others.
