More than one in three women have experienced domestic violence in the US. The Women’s Center and Shelter is a leader in the Community, caring for the victims. The renovation of the building transformed the institutional Shelter into a Sanctuary for victims. Both guests and Staff can now recover from the trauma, finding hope in every room. The goal was to help victims in finding their dignity, and the courage to start a new life.
