Coming Soon: Home Safe Home
CFJ is excited to announce its plans to build a new, state-of-the-art safe house for a growing number of local domestic violence victims in need of emergency shelter.
Late this fall, CFJ expects to open the doors at Empower House. This new, expanded residence will offer adults and children fleeing domestic abuse a secure and comfortably appointed temporary home where they can begin the challenging work of rebuilding their lives in the aftermath of trauma.
This updated safe house will help CFJ address the growing need for emergency shelter exacerbated by the Covid-19 pandemic. Our existing safe house has been full since last spring, forcing us to spend tens of thousands of dollars on overflow hotel shelter to keep our clients safe.
With 24/7 staffing, on-site counseling and comprehensive support services, Empower House will allow CFJ to expands its ability to shelter victims in a spacious, fully renovated 9,000 square foot home, where their many needs can be met.
