Residential Application

The Children & Family Advocacy Center operates a long-term shelter for women, and their children, in crisis. If you, or someone you know, is in need of our services please fill out our Residential Application and a member of our team will contact you.

Our shelter is not emergency housing. The residential program provides long-term holistic services for the women and children who are currently residing with us. Our program focuses on the physical, mental, and psychosocial healing of our families and re-integrating them back into the community towards self-sufficiency.

Program Eligibility:
  • Homeless Woman/Woman with Children
  • Domestic Violence/Trauma Survivor
  • Clean Record (no assault/battery/neglect/child maltreatment findings)
  • Prior involvement in a transitional living program is discouraged
  • 6 months sobriety
  • Willing to abide by program guidelines
  • Willing to follow medical provider recommendations regarding medication management for mental/behavioral diagnosis
  • Strong inclination to change and work towards self-sufficiency
