Emergency Shelter

Sylvia Stein Shelter

Since 1982, Centre Safe has operated an emergency shelter for victims of domestic violence. The primary goal of our shelter is safety, and the secondary goal is for residents to achieve self-sufficiency through a weekly goal-oriented program.

An individual is eligible for shelter if:

  • They are a victim of domestic violence, sexual assault, or stalking
  • They can take care of themselves and their children
  • They are not a threat to themselves or others

Our Shelter Can Provide

  • Safe housing up to 30 days
  • Extensions to the shelter stay when a housing lease is in hand
  • Information and referral
  • Support for individuals and their children
  • Counseling for the children
  • Advocacy with other agencies
  • Assistance with accessing money
  • Emergency food, clothing, and personal care items
  • Bus tokens and information about transportation
