That means each year, more than 10 million Americans experience domestic abuse.


The Salvation Army Helps Save
Victims from Domestic Violence Through:

The Cascade Women's and Children's Center

We provide immediate assistance to victims of domestic violence and put them on the path to independence at this 24-hour shelter specifically designed for women and children escaping domestic abuse. The center provides everything from health referrals, counseling, and transportation to GED certification programs, parenting classes, employment assistance, and permanent housing placement. We also offer children a nurturing environment in a therapeutic preschool program. The location of the facility is kept private for the safety of our clients.

The Phoenix Elim House

This refuge offers a safe haven to families of up to eight and children 17 and under, harboring over 1 million women each year. Over the course of up to 120 days, Elim House empowers victims of domestic abuse through personal goal and safety plan development. They also offer crisis counseling and recreational activities, such as field trips, games, and arts and crafts, for children escaping domestic violence.

Northwest Division Center

We put victims of domestic abuse on the road to recovery with this extensive program. In addition to providing confidential emergency and transitional shelters, we help them take steps toward recovery and living independently.
