The Salvation Army helps save
victims from domestic violence through:

The Cascade Woman and Children’s Center

This 24-hour shelter is specifically designed for homeless women and children who are survivors of domestic violence. Through health referrals, counseling, GED-certification programs, parenting classes, transportation, employment assistance, and placement into permanent housing, we provide assistance with vital life skills initiatives that help women maintain independence from abusive partners. Additionally, we provide children with a therapeutic preschool program in a nurturing environment. For the safety of our clients, the location of the facility is not available to the public.

The Phoenix Elim House

A safe haven that gives refuge to more than 1 million women every year, the Elim House can accommodate families as large as eight and accepts children up to and including age 17. The center, which harbors women and children for up to 120 days, helps residents develop safety plans and personal goals as steps towards empowerment. Children here are provided with their own crisis counseling program, along with recreational activities such as arts and crafts, field trips, and games.

Northwest Division Center

This extensive abuse recovery program assists victims of domestic violence through confidential emergency and transitional shelters. Victims and their children can stay safely here while we help equip them with the steps necessary to move toward recovery and independent living.
