Area families seeking refuge from abuse will have a new emergency shelter to help keep them safe.
The Center Against Sexual and Family Violence has completed construction of a 37,000 square foot facility built specifically to meet the needs of those traumatized by violence.
“This landmark achievement is four years in the making,” CASFV officials shared. “It is through the hard work of an impassioned Capital Campaign committee, Board of Directors, staff and volunteers that we raised $7.5 million dollars to rebuild our shelter. We are extremely grateful.”
The Emergency Shelter for Survivors of Sexual and Family Violence will open its doors to welcome families before the Christmas holiday.
Officials add that, “Tremendous care was taken to ensure that this shelter creates an environment that engenders mutual support, safety and most importantly hope.”
CASFV is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to confront and prevent domestic violence and sexual assault, in all its forms, as an advocate for safety and justice through intervention, education, and community collaboration.
