The Shelter for Help in Emergency is committed to providing a safe, supportive, confidential, and respectful environment in which survivors of domestic violence are empowered with the knowledge of personal and community resources, as well as the skills needed to make informed decisions for themselves and their families.

Since 1979, the Shelter for Help in Emergency has provided comprehensive, trauma-informed services to adults and children who are victims of domestic/intimate partner violence in Planning District Ten (City of Charlottesville, and the surrounding counties of Albemarle, Fluvanna, Greene, Louisa, and Nelson).

Today, the Shelter for Help in Emergency provides strong, well-established programs and services that respond to the needs of the whole community. Clients are served within a safe, confidential residential facility, and through a Community Outreach Center. Residential and outreach clients are offered a range of services including crisis intervention, case management, counseling, legal advocacy and court accompaniment, programs for children and adolescents, and specific outreach to the Spanish-speaking community. The Shelter has worked to become a resource to the whole community – a place where people can find information about domestic violence and learn ways in which they can get involved.
