As the only long-term transitional housing facility for domestic violence survivors in Collin County, Emily's Place seeks to break the cycle of domestic violence for women and their children by providing "transformational" living with emphasis on emotional healing and life-skills training to ensure a successful, self-sustaining future.
Emily’s Place is not a shelter, which typical allows women to stay for 30-90 days. Rather, it is a “transformational” housing ministry based on a 24-month stay commitment which promotes stability and wise choices.
The transformational program includes counseling, addictions recovery, vocational assistance, life skills development and spiritual nurturing. Emily’s Place program is unique in that residents live in a highly structured environment under direct supervision and community involvement. The structured environment of 24/7 live-in staff offer the support and accountability needed to transition from a difficult past into a bright future.
For victims of domestic violence, Emily’s Place is the BRIDGE from the shelter back into the community.
