Our Services

Emergency Shelter Services
House of Faith provides emergency shelter, counseling and emergency relief services for women and children victims of domestic violence at
our Safe Campus. The Safe Campus concept is simple: provide everything women and children need to stay safe and escape from
their batterers at one confidential location. Services include intensive counseling, medical care, psychological evaluation, day care and after-school programs for children, and job, technical and life skills training
for adults all easily and safely accessible.

Outreach Services
Clients who need services without shelter receive community-based group and individual counseling and support services. Our Youth Education Prevention Services reach out to children and youth in
area schools teachingthem how to stop the cycle of violence through domestic violence education and leadership training.

Client Legal Services
House of Faith provides an advocate for clients in cooperation with Legal Services of Dutchess County. These services provide legal support in civil issues including temporary custody orders, divorce and support (spousal and child), custody and visitation, protective orders, emergency orders and writs of attachment.

Public Education
Through our speakers' bureau, a newsletter published four times a year, an active public relations program and powerful public service announcements, House of Faith provides extensive and ongoing education about the negative effects of family violence on our community.
