Albion’s Emergency Shelter provides a short term safe haven for victims of sexual or domestic violence and their minor children. It is located close to the city bus route, accessible to local service agencies, and completely accessible to individuals with physical disabilities. The shelter is equipped with numerous security measures and is regularly patrolled by law enforcement. In addition to physical safety, our agency works to provide emotional well-being through provision of services in a safe environment. The space is designed to feel as close to home as possible, with residents having access to a large enclosed yard with a patio, playground equipment, picnic tables, and a basketball court.
We are staffed 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Our emergency shelter services include the following:
- Case Management: Upon arrival, clients will be assigned a case manager to empower her/him through goal setting, safety planning and work towards self-sufficiency to regain a life free from violence.
- Individual and Support Group Advocacy: Advocacy is provided in both individual and group settings throughout the duration of their stay.
- Children’s Program: An advocate will work with those who enter shelter with children to determine their needs, connect them with resources and provide referrals to help empower families.
