Safe House for Women
The Safe House for Women, located in Cape Girardeau, serves a three-county area in Southeastern Missouri. Our Crisis Shelter assists 200 residential survivors of domestic violence and our Outreach Office serves an additional 300 non-residential survivors each year. Clients receive free services including safe shelter, individual and group counseling, case management and crisis intervention, and court advocacy. Support through Community Aces would provide additional resources for clients working to build new lives for themselves and their children. This would include transportation assistance, medical care and prescription assistance, grocery assistance, childcare assistance, job search and preparation assistance, etc. Funding for these types of programs is very limited, while the need for these types of practical assistance continues to grow. Your support would help make it possible for women and children in crisis to find safety, security and the support they need…day or night.
