Transforming Lives. Building Communities. Restoring Hope.

Our Mission

To break the cycle of violence for women and their children through long-term transformational care that seeks to restore faith, hope, and health.

Emily’s Place provides long-term housing that is critical for helping domestic violence survivors permanently escape abuse.  It is the “bridge” from a shelter, which typically allows women a safe place for 30 to 90 days, to independent living, free of the barriers preventing them from achieving self-sufficiency away from their abusers.

Check out our upcoming events as well as news updates concerning our vision.

All women receive one-on-one counseling and case management sessions focusing on their individual needs. Together with their counselor and case manager they map out measurable goals in order to prepare them for independence and a successful transformation.

Emily's Story

When Mark Hagan settled on a name for the nonprofit he founded in 2002, he was honoring the memory of his cousin Emily Mays. In many ways, Emily’s story echoes those of the women who find themselves at the place of hope named after her. 

On a typical day, domestic violence hotlines receive approximately 21,000 calls, an average of close to 15 calls every minute.
