Providing HOPE for domestically Abused or homeless women and children


The Joy D. Baker Center

The Joy D. Baker Center serves women with or without children affected by domestic violence and also serves as a shelter for homeless women with children. Safety is a top priority in our monitored, secure facility. In addition to providing housing and meals, our 24-hour staff serves as counselors and liaisons with both the court and the school systems and can assist with job placement or referrals to other agencies.


Many months, there’s not enough money to pay for rent, utilities and food. The Salvation Army has helped me keep a roof over my family’s head and food on the table.
