Rating: 5

This organization provides extremely valuable support for victims of domestic violence, mostly women and young children. The organization has a 24 hr. toll free crisis line, an emergency shelter, and provides counseling, legal assistance, education and many other services to victims. The services are provided by a combination of staff (employees) and volunteers. The staff and volunteers are the best in their field, and work around the clock to provide help to people who are often in a very desperate situation.
