Not everyone needs the security of the emergency shelter. Many victims have a place to stay or are not ready to leave but need counseling and advocacy services. In its 35 years, Hubbard House has offered outreach services as well as emergency shelter for victims of domestic violence and their children. Annually, we help more than 5000 people through our outreach programs.
Our outreach services are offered at the Hubbard House Outreach Center, located at 6629 Beach Boulevard, and at various sites throughout the community.
Clients who utilize the Outreach Center may be shelter residents who need continuing support after they leave shelter so that they can maintain violence-free lives, those who may not need shelter because they have other housing options or because their situation has not yet risen to an acute level, or those who are now safe but need someone to talk to or some additional help. Services for children are also provided on an outreach basis.
We provide separate support groups for adults and children, case management services, crisis intervention, individual counseling, advocacy, relocation assistance, court advocacy, groups for individuals whose children are involved with DCF and 24-hour emergency response, as well as help in developing a safety plan.
To learn more about our programs and services or to make an appointment with an advocate please call (904) 400-6300. Advocates are available to talk with you without an appointment Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. or you can call to arrange a time convenient to you.
