DVIS has a campaign goal of $25 million for capital, endowment and program support to build a new 80 bed emergency shelter, 20 unit transitional living apartment complex and counseling offices. We are consistently at or over capacity, and our facilities are in disrepair from overuse.

The shelter includes these new features:
•    Private bathrooms in every room, so we will now be able to house families with teenage boys
•    A number of designated spaces specifically for different ages and needs including a teen room, a single women’s lounge, a family lounge, multiple play areas for children, cry rooms, and a spiritual/meditation room. These various rooms will aid in the healing and recovery process
•    An area of the shelter for victims of human trafficking, providing specialized counseling services and as-needed care
•    A room specifically designated for male clients
•    A kennel for dogs and cats who belong to clients fleeing a violent situation. Find out more about our kennel here.
•    Energy-efficient building and maintenance
