Men who contact the shelter in an emergency DV crisis are also given shelter utilizing hotels. Men who are victims receive the same services as women.

The program also provides a 24/7 crisis line manned by shelter advocates who assist by providing shelter arrangements, immediate safety planning, referrals, and/or linkage to the agency’s legal advocates.
