In one year, Helping Hands provides over 4000 safe nights for women and their children, answers about 150 crisis calls, answers nearly 3000 follow-ups with survivors, assists dozens of women at the Emergency Room, and creates over 150 safety plans. We do this with primarily donated funds and supplies.
Through the past 36 years Helping Hands has developed from an entirely volunteer run safe-house network to a strong community agency with two facilities. The Chrysalis House is a 30-day emergency shelter for women and their children who are escapingabusive situations. The second facility is the Young Women’s Center, transitional housing for women, andtheir children, ages 18-24 who have been victims of crime and would otherwise be homeless.
