SAFV provides a safe, comfortable home for our residents. We maintain a shelter with capacity for 24 women and children who are victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, or stalking. Shelter services are available for those in emergency situations who need immediate safety as well as survivors of past trauma and abuse who need temporary, safe living conditions. Residents work with our trained advocates for personal support, safety planning, and to access the support services they need to build a safe life on their own. Our children's advocate works with resident children to provide personal support, family services, and respite childcare. 


If you would like to talk to an advocate about staying at the SAFV shelter, please call us at 907-747-3370. If you would like to donate items to the shelter, please see our Donate page for a list of needs and donation guidelines. Following are the amenities that SAFV offers:
