News & Events
Over the past 30 years, research has established a clear link between domestic violence, child abuse, and animal abuse. For victims of domestic violence, finding a safe place for their pet can often mean the difference between staying in an abusive environment or seeking safety at a domestic violence shelter like Karen's House. Family Services is partnering with the Valley Oak SPCA to change that. With temporary shelter and vet care available for their pet, these victims can become survivors with the goal of reuniting with their animal as they pursue a new life of safety and security.
Family Services is looking for volunteers to join our dedicated team of crisis counselors. We provide 40-hour certification training so you'll be ready to help survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault find safety and hope. Training starts in October!
Join Family Services online on October 2 for our virtual Purple Party! Join us for curbside dinner pickup, an online silent auction, livestream event, and more! This year's event proceeds will allow us to create a safe space for domestic violence survivors to feel comfortable leaving their pets temporarily while they shelter with us at Karen's House.
