Last year at about this time Golden House staff was preparing to move into their temporary spaces to continue to provide outreach and shelter services as construction on the new facility was preparing to begin. If you have driven down University Avenue recently, you’ve seen the progress. As construction completion draws near, crews are working on completing resident rooms and finishes throughout the building.
It is clear by the numbers that Golden House will surpass the total number of clients served last year. As the numbers increase, their commitment to serve more has been faced with the challenge of limited space and two separate locations. Yet, Golden House’s dedicated staff and their vision to serve clients better lies just around the corner in their newly designed space.
These renderings show a resident room in our new facility. A place where those fleeing domestic violence can go to find safety and a comforting space in which to begin their healing journey. Individual resident rooms will accommodate families of many different sizes and will provide families the privacy to walk this journey at their own pace with support and dignity.
To date, Golden House has provided nearly 4,000 days of shelter to those in need of a safe haven. They look forward to announcing a date in the near future when their new doors will open to all those in the community who are in need of safety and support from domestic violence.
Naming opportunities remain available for those interested in joining Golden House’s mission to provide safety and support to help those experiencing domestic abuse in our community. Please consider a gift to Golden House’s On The Rise Capital Campaign: Donate Here.
