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 increased in 2019 so that we are now able to serve up to 57 women and children at a time. All support for the Dwelling Place is greatly appreciated!
