The HUDSON VALLEY HOUSE OF HOPE is an emergency shelter for individuals and children that are survivors of domestic violence. The shelter was founded in July 2008. The facility is designed to provide 14 residential beds. Each family is welcomed into their very own room and all residents share communal bathroom facilities, a family playroom, in-house laundry facilities, and a fully equipped kitchen. In addition to a host of advocacy services and referral resources, we provide food, clothing, children supplies, and personal hygiene items for each resident. We are passionately committed to providing a House where Hope is encouraged to grow.
What are the signs and who is affected?
Domestic Violence is an abusive behavior that one person in an intimate partner relationship uses in order to control the other. Domestic violence does not discriminate based on age, race, color or sex. The abuse is seen in the form of emotional, financial, physical, psychological, and sexual means. The abuse is seen in such behaviors as threats, name-calling, isolation from family and friends, withholding money, stalking (in person and/or on social media), actual or threatened physical harm, and sexual assault. The abuse could develop very quickly in the relationship or it could develop and/or escalate very slowly over time.
