Stronger, Safer Relationships

In order to ensure the health of participants and staff, everyone coming into the shelter will now be asked to take their temperature before entering the building. Participants will be asked to take their temperature once a day.

What is AWARE?

Are you in a relationship that feels controlling and scary? Do you have a friend or a loved one who is increasingly isolated by a partner? Do you want to see young people break the cycle and thrive?

AWARE provides support to people who have experienced domestic violence or sexual assault. We also offer violence prevention programs to the community as a whole. You have the right to be safe! No one deserves to be abused.

The AWARE shelter is gender-inclusive.
