Sometimes asking for help is the bravest move you can make
We support women, children and individuals from marginalized communities who have fled intimate partner/domestic violence, sexual assault, physical/emotional abuse, human trafficking – and who are struggling with poverty and/or homelessness.
Please fill out one of the pre-intake forms below and we will be in touch within 5 days.If you are in crisis and require immediate assistance, please call 911.

What to expect after you submit a pre-intake form:
We will respond by phone or email within 5 business days to set up an intake
The intake process will take approximately 15-25 minutes
We create a very safe space for you during our intake process. We have a series of well-thought out questions we will be asking you in this intake. If at any point you feel triggered by our questions, we will pause the intake and wait for you to book a follow up session when you are ready to begin from where we left off.
If you qualify for our services, we will require government issued photo identification
As of Jan 1, 2022 we will require a copy of bank statements from the past 90 days
We recognize the courage it takes to reach out for help and, if we cannot directly help you ourselves, we will make every effort to provide you with additional referral resources.
