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, female or male, 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, but desire to live independently from their abusive partners and need 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.

The following are services provided through Shelter Without Walls Domestic Violence Program:

Safety Planning

  • A step by step individualized plan to reach safety and independence


  • Shelter referrals if needed
  • Housing locators
  • Legal lay advocacy services
  • Crime victim information and referrals


  • Domestic Violence Education
  • Resources and referrals
  • Group and individual counseling
  • Mentorship program

Case Management

  • We work closely for more than a year (or as long as it takes) with participants to ensure their safety and ability to provide for themselves and their children while maintaining their independence and self-respect. The goal of staff and supporters is that women and children get safe and stay safe.

All cases are handled in the strictest confidence.
