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.

When complete, Eliza’s Safe House will be a safe place for women and children fleeing domestic, sexual violence and/or human trafficking. Our counselors and advocates will work directly with individuals, and provide medical care as needed, court advocacy, peer support, and case management services.

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.

 

We Need Your Help To Move Eliza’s Safe House Forward!
