Poetry House is a 20-bed residential domestic violence shelter for survivors and their children. In addition to support groups, counseling, legal advocacy and children’s services, families in shelter receive help in securing public assistance and other services, locating transitional and permanent housing, obtaining medical care, education and employment information, and planning for a safer future.
The GSV may provide a full array of in-person services and support including: case management, counseling, advocacy, self-sufficiency counseling, as well as child-related services or support to domestic violence survivors and their children who reside at Poetry House. The GSV will collaborate in-person with on-site staff to ensure the smooth day-to-day operation of the residence where a trauma-focused, anti-racist, and youth and family development approach is implemented amongst all staff and participants. Some virtual services may also be provided during the pandemic when public health issues remain a concern.
