Single Mothers experiencing domestic violence
In 2008, after seeing Door of Hope’s model and success rate, the city asked Door of Hope to take over one of their facilities that was struggling. After carefully looking at the location as well as the need in the community, Door of Hope took over the facility for the purpose of serving single mothers and children who were victims of domestic violence.
This site serves 13 single moms and children at a time and is located at an undisclosed location for the safety of those who stay there. “I still remember the first mom who moved into this location,” said Executive Director, Tim Peters, “she was shaking and afraid, I knew then that we had to create an environment of safety and refuge so that these moms and kids could begin the work of rebuilding their lives.”
While the core concepts of this site are in line with the rest of the Door of Hope facilities there are variances because of the unique struggles of those who enter this facility. Many of the mothers and children at this location have experienced unspeakable violence and abuse, and Door of Hope tailors it’s services to help them break free from the past, and look towards a brighter future for their families.
