At Hope's Door New Beginning Center, we help individuals and families
escape and heal from domestic abuse, dating abuse and family violence
through our free trauma-informed services.
Our two emergency shelters offer temporary housing to survivors and
their children fleeing life-threatening situations.
Clients living in our emergency shelters are provided with food,
clothing and all the necessities of daily living along with case
management, safety planning, counseling, legal support, and referral to
other community resources.
Clients can stay in the emergency shelter for up to 90 days and the
location of the shelter remains strictly confidential to ensure the
safety of those living in the shelter.
Children living in the shelter are enrolled in schools nearby or may
attend their home school if it is safe to do so.
In addition to
temporary shelter, we offer the following services free of charge at
both of our Outreach Centers in Plano and Garland: -Counseling sessions
for adults and children, including individual and group therapy
-Legal support including legal advice, assistance with protective
orders, child custody and divorce, and possible full representation
-Transitional housing services for clients leaving the shelter that
includes rental assistance, deposit waivers, case management and
Survivors in need of services other than shelter or those who have left
the shelter can access these services in English or Spanish.
Anyone wishing to receive any of our free services are encouraged to
call our 24-Hour Hotline, which is answered in English and Spanish 24
hours a day, 7 days a week. 24-Hour Hotline: 972-276-0057
