Domestic Violence Shelter

Domestic Violence Shelter Search Tool
One of the most commonly used features of is our search tool that allows anyone in the U.S./Canada to find nearby domestic violence programs and shelters. People are using this tool at this moment and millions of people have used it since 2014 to find someone locally to speak with, to find shelter, and to find a more positive future. We hope it's reassuring to know that you're not alone and that we can help you find help.
How to Use the Search Tool
To use the search tool, just enter your zip/postal code in the pink bar above and press enter or click the green SEARCH SHELTERS button. If you only want to see listings that offer a 24/7 hotline and/or emergency shelter, check the related boxes (along with your zip/postal code) and click the green button.
Advanced Search Option
You can refine your search further by clicking the pink FILTERS button. It will allow you to find programs and shelters offering a language you prefer or specific services you require. We track 12 languages and 93 different services. After selecting languages or services, click the pink APPLY button.

There are nearly 3,000 programs and shelters in our database offering help in almost every region in the U.S. and most regions in Canada. If the listings that appear do not meet your needs, please consider contacting The National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-7233 for additional support.
State and Province Lookup
Alternatively, you can also just click on a state or province below. When you do, you will be directed to a list of cities in that state or province; each contains at least one domestic violence program. You can then click on a city to get information on each program in that city.
