Emergency Shelter

“I always felt really safe at the Crisis Shelter. I felt nothing would happen to us there. I remember how I would take my brother and sister to play in the childcare room – I wanted them to feel safe too.”

Valley Crisis Center offers an emergency safe house program that is staffed 24-hours a day, 7 days a week. We assist in helping people affected by intimate partner violence, sexual assault and human trafficking with re-establishing secure housing, jobs, and school.

During your stay in our safe house, we can help you with advocacy with community agencies to make sure your needs are met. We also offer group activities like art projects, reading time with kids, financial planning, all during your stay in the safe house. Advocates provide crisis intervention, safety planning, and case management when needed. If you want, you can also get peer counseling, support group and restraining order services at our office.

The safe house is common living and we provide services to men, women, and children as well as people from all lifestyles. We provide all safe house services in English, Spanish and Hmong, but upon request other languages will be accommodated.

Our safe house is ADA accessible.

If you are in need of emergency safe housing, please call our 24-Hour Crisis Hotline and speak to an advocate today.

For participants who complete the safe house program but are in need of additional support, the transitional house may be an option. Speak to your case manager about your options.
