Mailing Address

Matthew House maintains certified crisis intervention, substance abuse, and domestic violence counselors. Matthew House has an extensive list of resources available in and out of the local community that are utilized to assist clients who are in crisis.

A Warm Safe Environment

Victims of Domestic Violence, (VDVs) most often present themselves to Matthew House immediately after leaving the batterer. They are in a state of extreme anxiety and often (like victims of other disasters) have only the clothing on their backs. Once identified, they are immediately separated from the other guests and greeted by a trained domestic violence counselor. Mathew House assists these individuals in reaching safe houses or other overnight shelters and provides meals, showers, clothing, and toiletries for most often women and their children. Matthew House has active relationships with providers of services to victims of domestic violence. These relationships are activated when a domestic violence case is identified and several agencies begin to develop services for that client.
