Women Aware: Emergency Shelter
Women Aware operates the only domestic violence emergency shelter in Middlesex County. Our 24-bed facility is staffed 24-hours/day, 365 days/year by multilingual case workers. Clients residing in our shelter receive much more than a bed for the night. Residents speak of our shelter as a welcoming “home” environment. Residents cook as a community in a fully equipped kitchen, and children play after school in the backyard and play room. Residents with hearing, visual, or mobility impairments move around our ADA-compliant shelter with ease. Moreover, because victims often arrive with few possessions, we provide a fully stocked food and baby pantry, new clothing, clean linens, toiletries and school supplies, toys, and books for children.
