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 isolate any specific race, gender, economic background, or culture. The only thing it creates is victims and trauma.

Eliza’s Safe House is soon to open, so look out for your invitation to our soft opening. This house will be used as another benefit to the community for those victims and survivors to have a safe space to regroup and restart their lives . 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.

The families we serve have experienced physical, mental, and emotional abuse, and trauma at the hands of their abusers. They may be cut off and isolated from family and friends, and not know what to do, where to go, or have resource access, but we help them take the steps they need to assess their situation and address their problems.

Eliza Safe House will provide multiple bedrooms to keep families together and safe, a kitchen to prepare meals, and common areas to relax or attend counseling sessions, so they can begin taking the necessary steps in their journey to a better, safer life.

“Never forget that walking away from something unhealthy is brave even if you stumble a little on your way out the door.” –ANONYMOUS
