River Valley Shelter For Battered Women And Children Inc
In 1984, a group of concerned citizens started the River Valley Shelter for Battered Women & Children. Since then, we have grown into an integral part of this community, offering safe shelter and resources to women and their children who are leaving abusive relationships.
The River Valley Shelter for Battered Women & Children (RVSBWC) provides free emergency shelter, food, and clothing to victims of domestic violence and/or sexual assault. We also provide a free 24-hour crisis phone line and services to clients.
We also offer court advocacy, bilingual services, children's advocacy and programming, community education, support groups, counseling, and a volunteer program.
Domestic violence does not discriminate; therefore, our clients are from across all demographics in terms of age, race socioeconomic status, and educational background. We assist any woman who meets the criteria for emergency intervention and assistance due to domestic violence or sexual assault.
