Our Shelter

Safe Harbor Crisis Center Shelter provides essential support and safety for domestic violence survivors and their children who need a safe place to stay. Many people think that a domestic violence shelter is like a homeless shelter, but this is NOT the case.

Our shelter is a safe place offering a personal, home-like space for safety and healing. The shelter is designed to feel like home combining safety and comfort with private rooms, a home-style kitchen, laundry room, and outdoor playground.



  • Our shelter offers 10 private bedrooms, each with two to four beds, tranquil decor, and dressers, cabinets, secure storage, and hanging rods for storage;
  • Home-style kitchen includes an oven, microwave, coffee maker, tableware, well-stocked pantry, refrigerator, and freezer;
  • Laundry facilities include two washing machines, two dryers, and laundry supplies;
  • Two comfortable common areas include couches, televisions, DVD players, a large dining table and chairs, toys, books, and games, even a newly donated Wii and Xbox for children;
  • An enclosed outdoor playground provides a safe and secure place for play;
  • A variety of children's resources are offered, including a classroom for education, counseling, and play;
  • Cribs and playpens are available.

    Thanks to our generous donors, Safe Harbor can also provide our shelter residents with needed clothes, food, and toiletries, as well as, other essentials and comforts. All Safe Harbor services are free and confidential. Our professional and volunteer staff is trained to deal with the effects of domestic violence. In addition to secure, homelike housing we offer: Crisis supportive services for adults and children; Help with housing, employment, social, and medical services; Case management and education about domestic violence; Life-skills training and support groups.

    Located in Davis County, Utah, the shelter operates 24-hours a day, 7-days a week. The shelter opened in 1997 under the direction of the Davis Citizens Coalition Against Violence and has provided safe haven to thousands since that time. Many domestic violence survivors who take the brave step to leave their dangerous situation have no place to go, but the Safe Harbor Crisis Center Emergency Protective Shelter can provide that safe haven while survivors move toward a life free of violence.
