Safety. Hope. Healing.

This year Tubman will offer safety, hope, and healing to about 16,500 people of all ages, genders, and cultural backgrounds who are facing violence, exploitation, homelessness, addiction, mental health challenges and other forms of trauma.

Serving for more than 45 years, and as the state's largest provider of domestic violence shelter beds, we help people in the aftermath of violence and trauma find safety and stability through our continuum of services. These include emergency shelter, transitional housing, Orders for Protection and legal advocacy, mental and chemical health treatment and therapy, youth intensive case management and outreach, violence prevention education and more.

Here is just one story about Olivia who recently came to Tubman...

"When I first called Tubman, I didn’t want to stay in a shelter. I was scared of what it would be like and didn’t want to uproot my family or walk away from everything I’d worked so hard for. But then the advocate started talking to me about a safety plan, and I realized that if we didn’t get help I could lose more than my things…I could lose my life. It was time to be courageous and take this chance to show my kids that we deserve to be safe, and maybe even happy again.

Tubman is more than a place to lay our heads, it’s a place to clear my head and rebuild our dreams. The supportive staff helped us each step of the way until we felt stable again and ready for our new apartment! 

To everyone who gives to places like Tubman, I would say thank you for giving us a safe place and for giving me hope."

Your gift of any size will help help people overcome barriers and move from fear to freedom. Here are just a few examples of how your support can make a tangible difference:

$45 – covers the cost of a housing application

$150 – to change locks so a family can feel safe in their home

$300 – pays for storage so a family can keep their belongings while staying in shelter

$500 – covers utility costs freeing up other resource for rent or mortgage

$700 – for an Order for Protection so that a family can safely remain in their home

$1500 – for a security deposit or first month’s rent in a new apartment


Tubman helps people find safety and housing in the literal, life changing sense, while providing support services to foster healing and a stable future.  And we can't do this work alone. Together, with your generosity, we can ensure critical services are available when they're needed most.

Your gift sends a message of hope to survivors.  It tells them you believe in them, that you believe in their worth, and that they deserve safety, hope. and healing.

On behalf of everyone at Tubman, our deepest thanks!
