Domestic Violence Program

Domestic Violence is one of the leading causes of homelessness for women. As an affiliate member of the Rhode Island Coalition Against Domestic Violence, we provide integrated services to address the unique needs of domestic violence survivors, as we work with them to break the cycle of violence and find secure, stable housing.

Through the Domestic Violence Program we offer comprehensive trauma-informed services for domestic violence survivors, including a 24-hour crisis hotline, emergency shelter, rapid re-housing, advocacy, support groups, and children's enrichment programs.

For help, call our 24-hour helpline at 401-861-2760.

Domestic Violence Program and Shelter

The Domestic Violence Program is primarily an emergency shelter program with a focus on safety and housing.

The shelter provides safety for 26 domestic violence survivors and their children in a confidential location separate from other Crossroads properties.

Clients have access to Crossroads Rhode Island’s range of services, including basic needs assistance, education, employment services and intensive case management, while they work to find a secure and stable home.

24-Hour Helpline: (401) 861-2760

We operate a 24-hour helpline for individuals in domestic violence situations. Our trained help-line volunteers can offer advice on staying safe, creating an escape plan, taking action as well as being there to listen.
