Discovery House provides safe housing and essential support for women and children fleeing domestic violence as they transition out of short-term shelters.


Each year, we house hundreds of families in our secure, 19-unit apartment complex and through our Community Housing Program (CHP), in affordable rental properties throughout the city. We also own one single family dwelling, Rosie’s House, which we rent to larger families.


An average stay is typically 7 months in our shelter or 14 months in the CHP, but some families are with us for up to year – then have access to programs and support for up to two years following – or as long as needed to ensure they continue down the path to independence.

It costs $750 to set up a family with basic needs when they arrive at Discovery House. By making a direct donation to Discovery House, your gift goes further, allowing us to purchase items needed by new families.
