Established in 1989, SafeHouse of Shelby County offers critical domestic and sexual violence response and prevention programs for the communities of Shelby, Coosa, and Clay Counties in Central Alabama.
During our 2014-15 fiscal year, our emergency shelter served 79 women and 66 children, while our transitional housing program supported 17 women and 7 children. Altogether, 7,740 bed nights were provided. In addition to our housing programs, SafeHouse offers critical services including: counseling, legal advocacy, life skills development, and economic empowerment. These services are available both in and out of shelter. Last year 202 victims who did not require shelter still received the benefits of our wraparound programs.
