House of Ruth’s mission is two-fold: (1) To advocate for and assist women and children victimized by domestic violence and children exposed to violence in transforming their lives by providing culturally competent shelter, programs, opportunities, and education; and (2) To contribute to social change through intervention, education, prevention programs and community awareness.
All of the services House of Ruth provides to individuals affected by domestic violence, are free of charge. In order to continue to meet the demand for services, we would like to raise $100,000. These funds will be used to support our exisiting programs that include our 3 core programs: Residential Shelter, Community Outreach, and Counseling. Within these core programs we offer a 24-hour crisis line, emergency and transitional shelter, individual counseling, group counseling, children’s programs, counseling for children of domestic violence victims, an outreach office, community education, legal assistance with Temporary Restraining Orders, emergency food and clothing; emergency response to calls from law enforcement and hospital emergency rooms, emergency transportation to shelter and other safe locations, and legal and social services advocacy.
We are passionate about providing assistance to survivors of domestic violence. Help us reach our goal! Thank you. :)
