More recently, SB 798, was passed to allow survivors to obtain important identifying documents, such as IDs, birth certificates, and driver’s licenses, at no cost. Access to these documents is critical for survivors trying to get back on their feet after fleeing abuse.
For 43 years, HCWC has also been a beacon of hope for survivors of domestic violence. Whether the need is for emergency shelter, legal advocacy, counseling, or advocacy services that allow for survivors to find additional resources for housing and rental assistance programs within the community, HCWC is always ready to assist.
In the next year, HCWC will be launching our Transitional Housing Program, which will include 18 units that will be available for families looking to restart healthy, happy lives.
If you need shelter, support, or resources due to domestic violence, please call our 24-hour HELPline to talk to our advocates, all of whom are specially trained and educated to help you navigate abusive situations, both before and after leaving.
