Welcome to Elizabeth House, Inc
Elizabeth House reaches out a hand of compassion 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. It is people caring for people. Elizabeth House receives no government funding but depends solely on people in the community, private grants, business donations, churches and others who have a heart to help bruised and battered women and children who have suffered abuse and violence in their homes.
Elizabeth House is a non-profit, 501(c)3, faith-based, charitable organization serving survivors of domestic violence, both women and their children.
- Transitional Living Facility
Elizabeth House is a long-term (6-12 months) residential care home with a loving, dedicated staff and family environment for women and their children to give them a chance to heal, save money for a decent home, get off welfare and achieve financial independence.
- Confidential Counseling
Peer/crisis counseling and professional or pastoral therapists as needed. All counseling is strictly confidential.
- Living Skills
Case managers assist residents with decision making and goal planning. They are taught safety planning, money management programs, help in coordinating educational needs, free community services, parenting classes, computer training and retail sales
- Support Groups
Weekly support/discussion groups break the isolation many women and children have lived in, provide a safe place to share and listen, teach the dynamics of domestic violence and how to break the cycle of abuse.
- Legal Assistance
Staff and volunteers will be available to assist with applying for an injunction for protection, court appearances, or personal advocacy. Referrals to our own Elizabeth House attorney will be made on a case by case basis for legal representation through the injunction process and other related issues.
- Children’s Program
Children, ages 3 through l7, will be taught to identify abuse, build self-esteem, resolve conflicts without violence, develop and use a safety plan if necessary, and break the silence about violence at home.
- Spiritual Enrichment Classes
Elizabeth House offers non-denominational Christian programs and Bible studies to the residents and their children
