EVERY RELATIONSHIP VIOLENCE-FREE
In 1979, Hubbard House became one of the first domestic violence shelters in the nation to provide therapeutic childcare for infant, toddler and preschool program participants. Today this means in addition to receiving loving care from specially-trained staff, our youngest participants benefit from a uniquely designed curriculum that addresses their needs as witnesses of domestic violence; for example, they participate in self-esteem building exercises and learn non-violent conflict resolution skills. Meanwhile, since the Center is in the secure shelter setting, parents can go to work or look for work, go to court hearings, etc. and know their children are not only safe but also healing and learning.
