Next Step operates an emergency shelter for people fleeing abuse in their homes, at no cost to guests. Our shelter is in a confidential location for the safety of families who live there. Although there is no specific time limit, shelter is intended to be a short-term living situation and guests are provided with support and assistance to find more permanent housing as soon as they arrive.
No matter how difficult the situation, it’s often hard to leave an abusive relationship. If finding a safe place to live is one of those reasons, Next Step can help. Just call our hotline – 1 (800) 315-5579 – and we’ll share with you options and resources, including our emergency shelter.
