The Caring Place’s 24-bed shelter is located at an undisclosed address for the safety and confidentiality of those who seek refuge there.  The 6-bedroom shelter was once a private residence and retains a home-like atmosphere. The living room and kitchen are often meeting places for adults, while children gather in the brightly decorated activity room.  Laundry facilities, outside deck, as well as a large backyard are also available to shelter residents.

A few words from previous shelter residents:

"I never knew the Caring Place existed until I found myself in a situation where we needed it. At the time, my 2 children were young (ages 6 and 9) and we came to the shelter for safety, but we left with so much more. We were given time to sort out the trauma we had just gone through and we received guidance to help figure out how we were going to move forward in our lives. We were given hope that we would not have to live our lives in fear and that healthy relationships could exist. I was given tools and resources so that I could keep our home protected after we left the shelter. I was taught about the cycle of abuse and was never made to feel ashamed for what we went through. I was empowered for feel strong again, and to feel like a good mother again. As I said before, the Caring Place gave us so much more than physical safety from a dangerous situation. We've continued to carry our experience at the shelter with us after we left. The key, I feel, is that we continued to use the tools they provided for us while we were in the shelter so that we could live our lives safe and protected outside of the shelter. This organization is truly here to help. I am extremely thankful for what they continue to do in people's lives, and I'm thankful that they gave me hope to feel whole again. " ~Anonymous
