Here at Elizabeth House, it is important to us that we not only give women a safe place to live but offer the women the tools and support to help them lead a successful and healthy lifestyle as they move forward in their lives. We have many services we provide our women to help them regain a positive self-image, learn the undercurrents of domestic violence, practical life skills and much more. It is our goal that every woman, and their child, that leaves the Elizabeth House never go back to a life of domestic violence.
Here is a list of some of the services we offer
