EVERY RELATIONSHIP VIOLENCE-FREE
Domestic violence survivors who come to shelter are welcome to bring their children with them. In fact, nearly half of our shelter residents are kids! Our adult residents are often impressed by all Hubbard House offers their children, and most kids truly love being here. We give the best hugs!
In shelter, children have their own beds and sleep in the same room as their parent. Their meals are prepared by their parent who selects the foods they prefer from the well-stocked Hubbard House pantry and cooks them in one of six residential kitchens. Each kitchen is also furnished with a dining table so families can eat together.
Our child residents also each have an advocate, and can, with parental permission, attend counseling and a group with others of the same age. Children, newborn to preschool age, can also attend Hubbard House's free-to-residents Childcare Center and older children can receive educational support. In all cases, Hubbard House works toward child safety, healing and empowerment.
