Domestic Violence Shelter at Family Shelter Service of Metropolitan Family Services DuPage offers help and hope for survivors of domestic violence as they rebuild their lives
The domestic violence shelter at Family Shelter Service of Metropolitan Family Services DuPage housed residents offsite when safety guidelines prohibited our survivors and their families from living in such close quarters; but the shelter wasn’t empty.
Debbie Galvez, Safe Home Coordinator, managed a renovation project, finishing a much-needed kitchen expansion and enhancing a space families call home when at their most vulnerable.
Now as the shelter welcomes back families, they’ll live in a space better equipped to support them as they rebuild their lives and begin to thrive.
