Women who are suffering from domestic violence and abuse are often tormented; their self-esteem depleted, are withdrawn and lack initiative, can’t think independently, are depressed and feel hopeless. These women need most of all support and understanding but also help to build confidence in them.
Children may also benefit from our child psychologist. Often children have to deal with fear, confusion, they are used as tools by parents, don’t understand how love and violence can co-exist. Children often develop speech problems, aggressive or overly passive behavior, fears, anxiety, bedwetting and even depression.
Shelters are often large homes with common areas shared by all residents. The Safe House is a fully furnished and equipped house with all the amenities included. A woman and her children can find the comfort, calm and safety that is needed to recover and gain physical and emotional strength. A private room is offered with wardrobe, laundry facility, children’s play room, several bathrooms, and fully equipped kitchen.
The Safe House is a confidential shelter and its’ location cannot be told to anyone even friends or family members.
