Since 1975, Doorways has welcomed those with nowhere else to go. When it began, it provided nights in a hotel for those in desperate need. Now, two emergency shelters, a long-term housing program, and holistic support services help homeless families and domestic violence survivors heal from trauma – and aim for independence. Along with crucial shelter and supportive housing programs, Doorways offers counseling and referrals for adults, physical and emotional support for youth (50% of clients are children), court advocacy and companionship for those seeking formal protection from an abuser, and individual financial education, along with a 24-hour hotline for those escaping violence or shielding a loved one. It all makes a vital difference: in the last few years, 87% of households secured safe, long-term housing and 95% of those with children strengthened and stabilized as a family. You know, as Doorways does, that everyone deserves a safe home.
