The YWCA of the Niagara Frontier operates a nine-bed crisis housing facility for domestic violence victims located in eastern Niagara County. This safe dwelling, nestled into a residential community, houses female victims and their children for a maximum of 30 days.

During their stay at the safe dwelling facility, women meet regularly with a domestic violence counselor. The counselor provides accompaniment to court and assistance with employment and housing options, as well as referrals and information for other local human service agencies.

This safe dwelling facility is completely confidential and made to feel like home, providing domestic violence victims with comfort and care in times of crisis.
