Next Step operates an emergency shelter — at no cost — for people fleeing abuse in their homes. Our shelter location is confidential for the safety of families who live there. Shelter is intended to be a short-term living situation but there is no specific time limit. All of our 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 at 1-800-315-5579 and we’ll share options and resources with you, including our emergency shelter.
