You can help provide a safe place to live and caring support for a day, a week, a month, or a year.

Our Cause

The Dwelling Place is a Christian ministry that provides long-term transitional housing, basic needs, trauma-informed supportive services, educational programs and mentoring for women and their children fleeing domestic violence. The Dwelling Place fulfills the need for healing time and personal development by providing comprehensive programs for 12 months (or longer, if needed), allowing women and children the precious gift of time. 

Our capacity has increased with the addition of Lydia's Place in Spring 2019.  We are now able to serve up to 57 women and children.

All support for the Dwelling Place is greatly appreciated!
