Emergency Shelter

Emergency Shelter

DVC provides domestic violence victims under dire circumstances with access to emergency shelter and transitional housing.

Women and children may stay in our confidential emergency shelter for up to 30 days. At our shelter, they receive emotional support, food, clothing, goal planning assistance, advocacy for medical, legal and financial resources, information and referrals. Residents and children participate in counseling, parenting groups, Windows Between Worlds art expression and nightly support groups.

The 30-day emergency shelter is comprised of three units with a total of nine beds and is able to accommodate women and their children, at a confidential site. Counseling is an integral part of all the DVC’s programs, services and the crisis shelter. The legal advocacy component assists victims in meeting with an advocacy counselor and accessing the resources available for restraining orders. The advocates are bilingual to meet the needs of Spanish-speaking clients and they will accompany the victim to court.

Please contact us for more information regarding our 30-day emergency shelter for women and children affected by domestic violence.


If you are questioning something that is happening to you, call us at our 24-hour hotline (661) 259-HELP (4357), or non-emergency line (661) 259-8175 for confidential information and support.
