Emergency shelter is available in Lafayette for victims of domestic violence and their children needing a safe, temporary place to live. As a resident of Faith House, we provide you with physical necessities, DV counseling, advocacy and referrals.
Faith House´s shelter has nine bedrooms, each has five beds and a bathroom that adjoins two bedrooms, a shared dining room and living room. The kitchen aide cooks dinner three days a week for the residents. Survivors also have access to the pantry and refrigerator to cook meals for their families. Laundry facilities are available onsite for residents.
A playroom is available for children to enjoy. The playroom is staffed with children’s advocates to oversee the children while playing and provide advocacy. Special events are planned to enhance the child’s experience.
Faith House has three survivor advocates and a legal advocate available to speak with survivors on a daily basis and to help set and work on their goals.  Our advocates are trained in many areas of domestic violence including: safety planning, lethality assessments, the dynamics of domestic violence and the effects of trauma.
