Artemis Center has been providing supportive services to victims of domestic violence and their children for over 30 years, serving over 95,000 victims/survivors. Domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women – more than auto accidents, rape, and muggings combined. National studies found about one in four women will be a victim of domestic violence.
Artemis specializes in providing services beyond the traditional housing and safety offered by domestic violence shelters. It was the experience of Artemis founders that victims fleeing domestic violence, in addition to needing a safe place, also need help understanding their rights, guidance through the often confusing and sometimes intimidating legal system.Without Artemis Center services individuals in the community will not have access to advocate support to create personalized safety plans, navigate the court system, referrals to community services, and individual and peer support.
