St. Jude House provides services to victims of domestic violence and/or sexual assault and their dependent children. We provide services to clients without regard to race, color, religion, gender, national origin, age, disability or other status applicable by law. Our facility is accessible to differently-abled clients. Shelter and crisis intervention services are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. All services are provided free of charge. Shelter services include a 45-day program providing crisis intervention, housing, daily living needs (such as food, toiletries, emergency clothing), support groups, legal advocacy, referrals and linkage to social service agencies and entitlement programs. Education and information about the dynamics and effects of domestic violence is also an integral part of the program. Residents live communally and share in housekeeping and cooking. The children’s program, in addition to counseling and support groups, offers conflict resolution and personal safety information.
