Marie's Story
(Her name has been change to protect her identity.)  
A compelling true story of one our women's struggle to find safety and new life.  

The Dwelling Place is a transitional shelter providing safe housing and structured programming for battered women and their children.  Residents may stay 12-18 months to receive healing, and acquire the necessary skills to achieve independent housing, a sustaining income, and violence free lives. We are a Christian ministry supported primarily by individuals and churches, and we endeavor to help all grow spiritually as they heal from the trauma of domestic abuse.
