Our Shelters:

If you are being abused, you may feel confused, afraid, angry, or trapped. All of these emotions are normal responses to abuse. You may also blame yourself for what is happening. 

Laura’s Place, named in honor of the life of Laura Breitner, was built in 2001 to provide safe and affordable housing to low-income domestic violence survivors.
