Since 1975, Doorways has welcomed those with nowhere else to go. When it began, it provided nights in a hotel for those in desperate need. Now, two emergency shelters, a long-term housing program, and holistic support services help homeless families and domestic violence survivors heal from trauma – and aim for independence. Doorways offers counseling and referrals for adults, physical and emotional support for youth (50% of clients are children), court advocacy and companionship for those seeking formal protection from an abuser, and individual financial education, along with a 24-hour hotline for those escaping violence or shielding a loved one. It all makes a vital difference: Last year, 94% of Safehouse households broke the cycle of violence and did not return to abusive living situations and 99% of children with social-emotional issues received services and counseling. You know, as Doorways does, that everyone deserves a safe home.
