Shepherd’s Door Domestic Violence Resource Center is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit, organization that bridges the gap between victims in crisis and the system that is designed to help victims. We take a trauma informed approach to meet the safety, physical, economic and emotional needs of our constituents. It can be extremely hard for survivors of domestic violence to get the assistance needed in time of crisis. We recognize the impact of domestic violence on society. We work hard to meet the needs of victims of abuse and increase community awareness and understanding of the cycle of violence.
Shepherd’d Door is committed to the cause of domestic violence and determined to do our part in breaking the cycle of domestic violence in families.
Is to break the cycle of domestic violence in families through self-esteem empowerment, financial literacy, youth violence prevention education and direct rescue intervention for safety.

We recognize that the inequality of women contributes to domestic and family violence.
We aim for high standards of accountability, transparency and service delivery.
We strive to work collaboratively and constructively.
