Domestic Violence Survivor Services

Domestic Violence Victim Assistance in Greater Phoenix

Shelter Without Walls

Our domestic violence program addresses the unmet needs of Maricopa County survivors of domestic violence and their children, who are residing outside of a shelter setting, and are struggling to attain and/or maintain safety and independence, whether or not still living with their abuser. SWW targets survivors of domestic violence identified as “falling through the cracks”: those not yet separated from the abusive partner but wanting to live independently and needing assistance to do so safely, survivors transitioning out of local shelters after a 30 to 120-day stay; and survivors living independently from their abusive partners but who are disconnected from services and struggling to remain independent.
