ILLINOIS DOMESTIC VIOLENCE SHELTERS
Help for Women & Children

Illinois domestic violence victims come from all walks of life, incomes, social ladders, professions, national origins, cultures, races, ages, genders, disabilities, marital status, veteran status and religions.

Shelters offer temporary refuge in the life-saving programs of emergency shelters or transitional housing to those who need to get away from a dangerous situation in order to avoid the risk of being killed, raped or seriously injured, regardless of race, age, national origin, religion, disability, marital status, or veteran status. Every single person deserves to feel safe, valued and respected.

CALL 911 IF YOU ARE A VICTIM. Domestic abuse can never be justified or excused, when both partners use violence to get what they want or to get their point across, it creates an environment that is extremely toxic and harmful to themselves and especially their children, who will grow up thinking a dysfunctional relationship is normal.
