Serving the Greater Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Area
The Eliza Safe House
Working to Offer Sanctuary to
Victims of Domestic Violence
Domestic violence doesn’t know race, gender, economic background, or culture. The only thing it creates is victims and trauma.
Eliza’s Safe House is to open up in January of next year. This house will be used as another benefit to the community for those victims and survivors to have a safe space while they transition. In addition, we are in the transition of placing our 3 donated Tiny Homes which we will use as an opportunity for victims to be able to transition for a longer period of time. These homes will also be used to house those undocumented immigrants that may be going through the transition from their home country to here in partnership with organizations out of state.
The families we serve are physically and emotionally abused and traumatized by their abusers, typically their husbands and boyfriends. They may be cut off from family and friends and not know what to do or where to go, but we help them take the steps they need to assess their situation and address their problems.
The Eliza Safe House will provide bedrooms that keep mothers and children together, a kitchen to prepare meals, and common areas to relax or attend counseling meetings, so they can begin taking the necessary steps in their journey to a better, safer life.
