Emergency Safe Shelter

The target population for HOPE’s Emergency Safe Shelter is Manatee County adult victims of domestic violence and their minor/dependent children who have no other safe place to relocate while deciding their best course of action. HOPE’s Safe Shelter helps both men and women who report being a victim of domestic violence without regard to the age, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, or religious belief. HOPE anticipates serving approximately 460 unduplicated clients (women and children) at the Safe Shelter next year. The population served is Manatee County residents; however, on rare occasions, when space permits, HOPE assists the other domestic violence program clients who must relocate due to safety concerns. 

Population(s) Served

HOPE’s Children’s Counseling Program has two components, one
is  geared toward children (up to 17 years old) who live in (or have lived
in) families where family or domestic violence occurs or has been witnessed.
The Children’s Counseling Program gives children living with the trauma of
domestic violence a safe place to express their feelings while learning new,
appropriate skills for living an abuse and violence free life.

The Children’s Program also provides prevention services for middle and high school students to not only to recognize the warning signs of
family violence, but also how to protect themselves or help a friend in danger,
practice healthy boundaries, talk respectfully to their partner, and take
responsibility for their behavior. HOPE also conducts trainings for school
personnel and community agencies on how to respond to dating violence incidents
and how HOPE can help with services for “at risk” students.

Population(s) Served

The Domestic Violence Counseling Program offers clients individual and group counseling in a safe and supportive environment. Group sessions are offered in the afternoon or evening and include specialized groups for elderly, women of color, Spanish speaking, and same sex clients. Clients are 18 years of age or older and live in Manatee County.
Counseling gives victims of domestic violence a safe place to express feelings and helps victims learn to trust their choices as they evaluate their options. The Domestic Violence Counseling Program works to increase a survivor’s self worth in order to help facilitate positive change for a violence and abuse-free future. In addition, Manatee County is a fairly large county and in an effort to reach all of the community members who may need assistance, HOPE has developed a neighborhood initiative by offering counseling services at various locations like the Women’s Resource Center, Manatee Technical Institute and at the Emergency Safe Shelter. 

Population(s) Served

HOPE’s Advocacy Program is front-line, emergency, meaningful
assistance designed to keep those who call on us safe from additional harm.
HOPE advocates offer clients who don’t need emergency safe shelter an
individual appointment within 24 hours.  Advocacy services include case
management, which is available to clients including accompanying them through a
myriad of services from the Food Stamp Office, the State Attorney’s Office, and
Court to attend an Injunction for Protection (restraining order) hearing,
criminal proceedings or to receive services from other local agencies.
Advocates can also coordinate financial assistance if the client meets HOPE’s
criteria.
