New Shelter Soon to Open Doors!

Spring is here and at Empowerhouse the excitement grows as we are so close to opening the new domestic violence shelter.

The renovation phase is near complete on the 10,000 square foot shelter that will house up to 40 women and children in our community at any given time and eliminate the turn away rate.

Friends of Empowerhouse have been lending a hand to make the opening of our shelter a reality.

Board members in the community gathered family and friends in their homes to collect items off our gift registries.
These University of Mary Washington students spent their Saturday heavy lifting 9 tons of mulch on the new shelter's 5,000 square foot playground. This was a massive undertaking to get this project completed. Thank you to Lockheed Martin volunteers and Mary's exercise group also!
Empowerhouse in the Community

Support Services Coordinator, Sarah King, visited Chancellor Middle School and Courtland High School to talk to students about healthy relationships during February's Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month. She gave presentations to 748 students in grades 6-9 on topics such as dynamics of abuse, sexual harrassment, and how to help a friend experiencing dating violence.

Thank you to our amazing community for raising $50,000 at this year's Empty Bowl! Look through the fun photo gallery from the event.
Thanks to an anonymous donor, 400 bags of mulch were used to create a safe, protective surface for the children's playground.
