Shelter From The Storm

The mission statement of The Shelter is to provide an alternative to living in a violent situation and to offer education and resources necessary for intervention and prevention of violence and to help victims make healthier choices for themselves and their families.

The Domestic Violence Shelter, Inc. opened its doors in 1979.  

The Shelter was first organized by a group of citizens who determined that a domestic violence shelter was needed.  The program began in a rented, two room office in downtown Mansfield.   A few years later, a very generous community member donated a three-story house.  After several renovations, the house became a four-bedroom shelter with administrative offices on the third floor.  In 1998 The Shelter, with a grant from a local foundation, purchased its current facility, which can house up to ten families. The Shelter provides a 24/7 crisis hotline and emergency shelter,  offers assistance with legal advocacy, case management, safety planning and sexual assault advocacy.    The Shelter is committed to ending the cycle of violence.
