About UsWestside Domestic Violence Shelter
"Breaking the Cycle of Domestic Violence"
Our Mission Statement:
The mission of Westside Domestic Shelter is to break the cycle of violence through services, education and advocacy.
Many people think that the victim could leave if they really wanted to and don't step in to help. Most victims do try to leave, on the average of 6 to 7 times before their final departure.
