NEW RESOURCES FOR DOMESTIC VIOLENCE VICTIMS AND
ABUSERS TO LAUNCH IN WEST VALLEY
August 19, 2007
(Phoenix)--There aren’t enough domestic violence resources in Phoenix, but thanks to the launch of the Family Renewal
Center, new services will be available for the first time in the West Valley.
Family Renewal Center’s purpose is to provide
women long-term housing after their time expires at a shelter. This secondary housing is key to keeping a woman from returning
to an abusive situation. The program will offer a woman and her children housing in a single-family home for up to two years.
Additionally, she will be provided with furniture and household items that are hers to keep, counseling, legal and life skill
services and help in finding a permanent home.
Family Renewal Center is currently purchasing homes
in El Mirage and Surprise, with the goal of operating 150 beds within 18 months. The first homes
should be available in November or December of this year.
To really stop the cycle of abuse, Family
Renewal Center is going to its
source with a program designed to treat the abuser. The 12-week small group program designed to get to the root of the control
problem that is a hallmark of abusers will be conducted in Phoenix.
To receive more information on either program, contact Family Renewal Center a t
www.narrowpathministries.org or 602-493-2016.
Family Renewal Center is also actively recruiting
volunteers and is seeking an Executive Director.
Our mission is to break the cycle of abuse by healing the abused, abuser, and those
affected by abuse; providing stable, long term housing and education for women and children in the West Valley, and rehabilitating the abuser.
