Emergency shelter is available for victims of domestic violence and their minor children in all five counties. Shelters are available every day of the year.

With the support of a case manager, shelter services include safety planning, counseling, legal support for protective orders, referral for financial assistance, housing assistance and other support services. For victims in Emergency Shelter, when needed, MSCFV case managers work with Emergency Shelter residents to secure:

  • transportation to the shelter
  • new cell phones
  • food
  • personal items 
  • clothing 
  • pet care items

Through MSCFV’s Pet Safety Programming, pet-friendly emergency shelters and pet boarding are available.

If you are a victim of family violence and need Emergency Shelter, please call us at 1-800-927-4673 (HOPE) or chat/email with us on this website. Our trained Hotline Advocates are available around the clock.
