Emergency Shelter

2020-2022 Core Award - $186,000.00

St. Martha's Hall provides a shelter care program for women who have experienced abuse and their children. The St. Martha's Hall Children's Program was created to break the cycle of violence and to address the needs of children and their mothers. The program's objectives are to reverse misconceptions that the child caused the violence; reduce incidents of aggressive behavior; present the belief that violence is neither normal nor acceptable; foster self-esteem and self-awareness; and provide developmental, educational, and medical advocacy.
