Women's Shelter

When women have nowhere left to turn and they feel like they are alone in the world, they can turn to a women's shelter to help them escape from violence and abuse in their lives. Many women endure the hardship of violence in their homes because they feel like they have nowhere to go and this scares them. However, women's shelters accept everyone and there is always a place to turn to if you find yourself in a situation of violence. These shelters provide a safe place to stay for a little bit white these women get back on their feet and turn their life around. Not only do they provide a place to stay, but they also allow women to meet other people in their situation so that they can join together and fight for their rights.

The Department of Housing and Urban Development has published studies showing the increased usage of women's shelters across the United States of America. While this number is somewhat upsetting due to the fact that it means many women are still finding themselves in situations of violence, it is also a good thing because it means that these women are taking advantages of the services and that they are not alone during this tough time.
