About Karen's House
Family Services provides comprehensive, trauma-informed services to survivors of domestic violence and their children. Our 40-bed emergency shelter, Karen’s House, offers confidential shelter, meals, and comprehensive support services to adult victims of domestic violence and their children at no charge while they work to re-establish their lives in a supportive environment. 

During their stay, residents can receive:

•             24/7 crisis support

•             a safe bedroom to rest every night

•             a trained advocate to provide guidance through their unique situation

•             enrichment activities for children and educational assistance

•             individual counseling and support groups

These are just a few of the services offered at Karen's House, and the people who benefit from them are the reason behind this purple-themed event. We invite you to learn more about Karen's House by taking a virtual tour.
