The mission of Laurel Shelter, Inc. is to empower victims of domestic violence and sexual assault by providing victim services and to prevent violence by increasing awareness of the impact these victimizations have on all members of the community.
In 1997, Laurel Shelter, Inc. opened to provide shelter and support services for domestic violence victims. In 1999 services to victims of sexual assault and/or abuse were added and Laurel Shelter, Inc. opened a Sexual Assault crisis center in the Edgehill Town Center. Thanks to generous donations, Laurel Shelter, Inc. was able to open the Thrift Store in 2003.
We are dedicated to assisting victims of sexual assault and domestic violence. We are also committed to reducing incidents of domestic violence and sexual assault in our communities. To achieve our goals, Laurel Shelter, Inc. offers shelter, advocacy, education and support to survivors, legal support, and community education to foster awareness and identification of victims.
Contact us today to find out how you can utilize our services to get the help you deserve.
Our outreach office has recently moved into our shelter. We are still able to meet with outreach clients in the community. If you or someone you may know needs assistance, please call us at 694-5890. We would be happy to meet you at our thrift store or local library.
