House of Ruth: Madison Emergency Shelter

House of Ruth: Madison Emergency Shelter

Our 84-bed shelter is a safe, supportive, temporary refuge for battered women and their children who are in immediate danger or at risk of homicide. We help women living in shelter begin recovery from the trauma of their partner’s violence and to rebuild their lives. We understand that many battered women need additional tools, skills, and resources if they are to become self-sufficient and live free of violence. Making good decisions about what is in their family’s best interest is a first step. But, developing and applying the skills and knowledge to become psychologically and financially independent is the crucial next one.
