Shelter From The Storm fields more than 3,200 calls on our 24-hour Crisis Lines each year, which in turn brings many families to our 70 bed emergency shelter. They come around the clock, 365 days a year, often fleeing for their lives.

The Mary Stuart Rogers Center currently provides safety, counseling, case management, and legal and social service advocacy for more than 900 women and children each year. On an annual basis, we provide more than 12,000 nights of emergency shelter. We also serve more than 36,000 meals to our residents each year.

In addition to our 60-day residential and therapeutic services for families, we maintain two on-site schools to provide a safe educational setting for our child residents: a Head Start-modeled preschool, and the recently opened Mary Heckmann School, right, a spacious, state-of-the-art schoolhouse for grades K-12.

The Florence Rigdon Center
Our 20-unit, 128-bed, two-bedroom apartment campus offers up to two years of housing and supportive services to women and children who have resided in an emergency shelter and who require additional time to attain emotional stability and financial self-sufficiency.

All residents receive professional, individual and group counseling on a weekly basis during their stay. Strong case management that focuses on education, budgeting, time management and self-sufficiency is a critical part of this program. All adult residents are required to work and/or attend vocational training, to avail themselves of support services and agree to save 30% of all income.

Serving more than 115 women and children and providing over 18,500 bed-nights annually, this two-year program is truly the gift of time for survivors of domestic violence.
