Case Management
In order to continue residency at the shelter, residents must be accountable for their actions and demonstrate that they are taking steps to make positive changes in their lives. They participate at least weekly in case management sessions to set health, legal, educational, employment, family, spiritual, and other goals. Their case manager is an active partner in the process, offering encouragement, guidance, and support.

Learning Opportunities
To broaden the thinking and experience of our residents we schedule learning opportunities in a wide range of area. Volunteers from the community share their knowledge and expertise in such areas as career search, finding scholarships, Tai Chi, self defense, budgeting, and more.

Children's Advocacy Program
Our children have individualized needs and require special attention. They are often the silent victims who are overlooked in both the legal system and the family itself. Our playroom is the setting for individual and group therapy as well as socialization opportunities designed to help them "learn to be kids” again. We also provide legal advocacy and court testimony when necessary.

The thought of staying in a domestic violence shelter can be frightening, if you don't know what to expect. Christian Care's Domestic Violence Shelter replicates the best aspects of a healthy family life, while providing a safe haven for victims of abuse.

The shelter is a home in a quiet neighborhood at an undisclosed location—a safe haven away from the rush of everyday business, located strategically to greatly reduce the possibility of abusers locating our clients while they heal and get back on their feet.

The shelter is homey and comfortable, with many modern conveniences and friendly staff members on duty to help each individual. Residents live in a caring community, but one with a system of rules and guidelines in place that we enforce fairly and consistently. For example, drugs, alcohol, profanity, gossip and disrespect to others are not permitted. There is a curfew every night. Everyone shares chores and works together to make positive changes in their lives. The introduction of order, calm, and procedures encourages both adults and children to learn how to establish and maintain healthy boundaries, and how to respect themselves and others. Our schedule of activities and house rules provide structure and spell out expectations.

Over the years we have provided services to thousands of women and children. We provide food, safe shelter, clothing, and personal care itemsFree of charge, as well as spiritual guidance and Bible studies. Since many of our residents do not have adequate support systems in their lives or the social skills needed to overcome the problems they are dealing with, we focus on counseling, holistic case management and learning opportunities for our adults and provide our children's advocacy program for our younger residents. We also take time out to play and relax together.

The time limit to stay is flexible and is based on behavior, adherence to policy and procedures, and need. We provide a safe, supportive environment where residents can make plans for their future and try out new behaviors. It is our hope that when they leave, each resident is strong, healthy, and motivated to succeed in a new life.
