Description: Friends of the Family offers emergency shelter for survivors of relationship violence and sexual assault. Persons seeking shelter may call the crisis line 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, at 800-572-4031 or 940-382-7273. Eligibility for shelter will be determined based on safety concerns related to relationship violence or sexual assault, resulting in the person having no safe place to stay. In the event a caller is not eligible for our shelter, referrals to other local resources will be provided. The shelter is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Crisis intervention specialists answer the hotline, monitor the house, and assist clients with basic needs during night, weekend and holiday hours. The 32-bed residential facility offers numerous services that encourage safety planning, education regarding relationship violence, personal growth, and independent living skills in an abuse-free environment. Generally, clients stay in the shelter for up to 30 days; extensions may be approved on a case-by-case basis.
