Emergency Shelter for Victims of Domestic Abuse

Our 128-bed residential facility is in a secure location, providing temporary shelter for individuals and families who need support when their home is not a safe place. During their stay, each participant is assigned an advocate to help them create a service plan based on individual needs. Children living with us are eligible for on-site childcare, elementary school, after school programs, summer camp, and tutoring. Our Shelter University offers classes to our participants to help them prepare for self-sufficiency. Our Health and Wellness Champion connects survivors to healthcare services, facilitates health and wellness groups, and coordinates community health resources for our participants. Also, with community partners, The Spring provides a safe and confidential location for pets to stay while their families are in the shelter.

Population(s) Served
Victims and oppressed people

12-unit apartment complex that serves as transitional housing for survivors working to regain financial independence. At any given time, as many as 46 women and children live in our apartment complex after having permanently left abusive relationships. Some of the adult residents are enrolled in college or enhanced job training programs, while others are working to save money so that they may rebuild their financial independence. Each family signs a one-year lease and pays a significantly-reduced portion of their rent and utilities.

Population(s) Served
Victims and oppressed people

The Spring’s outreach programs work to empower victims of domestic violence in or leaving abusive relationships. Our advocates lead multiple support groups and help survivors with safety planning, linkage to shelter, supportive counseling, and advocacy on their behalf in the community. Also, we have advocates that work with local law enforcement to identify victims and survivors of domestic violence at high risk of being murdered by their partners. Our advocate reaches out to survivors to offer safety planning information and services. And we have advocates that work with the child welfare service providers. This partnership bridges the gap between child welfare and domestic violence service providers to enhance family safety, create permanency for children, reduce removals of children from non-offending parents, and hold batterers accountable.

Population(s) Served
Victims and oppressed people

Our hotline staff answers calls 365 days a year, helping callers create safety plans; listening to their concerns, and making suggestions for interventions; connecting callers to emergency shelter, outreach services, or other resources; and assisting survivors wishing to file emergency Injunctions for Protection (IFP).

Population(s) Served
Victims and oppressed people

The Spring of Tampa Bay* employs attorneys who provide free legal representation in Hillsborough County to help obtain injunctions for protection (IFP) for any survivor of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual violence, and stalking without regard to income.
*The Spring of Tampa Bay, Inc. is not providing the legal services and is only acting as an intermediary.

Population(s) Served
Victims and oppressed people

The Spring’s Prevention Team members educate our community on the tactics of power and control used by abusers and help young people and adults understand the key ingredients of healthy, respectful relationships.

Population(s) Served
Victims and oppressed people

The Coordinated Community Response (CCR) program engages the entire community in efforts to develop a common understanding of violence against women and to change the contributing factors of that violence. The CCR program consists of community representatives from law enforcement, health care providers, child protection services, educators, faith leaders, the criminal justice system, and domestic violence agencies. The program’s overall goal is to work collaboratively across agencies to keep victims safe and make sure abusers are held accountable.

Population(s) Served
Victims and oppressed people

This program provides homeless survivors with financial assistance to help them move into permanent housing. The survivor receives housing case management services that will assist the family in finding appropriate safe housing and creating an individualized housing stability plan to ensure long term stability to remain stably housed when the program ends. The housing case management services can last up to 12 months and throughout that time the participant will receive assistance with establishing goals, increasing their income, and referrals to mainstream benefits.
