Shepherd’s Door Domestic Violence Resource Center mission is to break the cycle of domestic violence
through relationship education, youth violence prevention awareness, financial empowerment
and direct rescue intervention.
Shepherd's Door Domestic Violence Resource Center is the recipients of the 2007 President's Volunteer Service Award from the President's Council on Service and Civic Participation. Shepherd's Door received this honor for volunteering over 4,000 hours in two years. We are committed to the cause and determine to do our part in breaking the cycle of domestic violence in families. Shepherd's Door was established in March of 2002. Shepherd's Door is a unique program because we bridge the gap between victims in crisis, and the domestic violence system that is design to help victims. However, it seems extremely hard to get the assistance needed in time of crisis. It is not easy to navigate the domestic violence systems. We recognize the impact of domestic violence on society and we work hard to increase community awareness and understanding of abuse.
Shepherd's Door Values:
- All family members have a right to safety where they reside and in the community.
- We recognize that the inequality of women contributes to domestic and family violence.
- Through good governance we aim for high standards of accountability, transparency and service delivery.
- We strive to work collaboratively and constructively.
- We expect to see changes in the lives of the victims.
