The mission of The Women's Safe House is to provide safe shelter and support services to battered women and their dependent children and to empower women to make informed choices about their futures.
Founded in 1977, The Women's Safe House, formerly St. Louis Abused Woman Support Project, was the first domestic violence shelter in St. Louis; operating solely with volunteer support. Originally, the shelter was located in a turn-of-the-century Victorian style house in the city of St. Louis that could accommodate up to 20 women and children and 6 infants. This building was rented from the Sisters of Loretto for $1 per year, and The House was responsible for all maintenance and improvements.
In 1995, with no option to either secure a long-term lease or purchase the property, coupled with a growing need for additional space, the Board of Directors embarked on a formal process to relocate the shelter. A capital campaign was initiated and raised over $1 million for our new building.
By 1999, The House moved to its current location that (at the time) offered space for 35 women and children, a commercial kitchen/dining room, children's play area, space for group sessions, storage, staff offices, and a conference room. Phase II of renovation was completed in late 2003 enabling The House to offer emergency shelter to 50 total women and children.
Nearing our 35th anniversary we are proud to be a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization open 24 hours a day, 365 days per year, serving approximately 650 women and children annually.
