About Domestic Shelters
We make finding the right shelter and information about domestic violence easier. Instead of searching the Internet, it is all right here. We’ve painstakingly verified information on shelters in LA to shelters in NY, and every domestic violence program in between. If you or a friend is suffering from physical abuse, emotional abuse, psychological abuse or verbal abuse, this free service can help. Select domestic violence programs based on location, service and language needs. Find 24-hour hotlines in your area, service listings, and helpful articles on domestic violence statistics, signs and cycles of abuse, housing services, emergency services, legal and financial services, support groups for women, children and families, and more.
Welcome to domesticshelters.org. We’re the first and largest online and mobile searchable directory of domestic violence programs and shelters in the U.S. and Canada, and a leading source of helpful tools and information for people experiencing and working to end domestic violence. Our mission is simple: make more people aware of the services available for those experiencing domestic violence and make it faster and easier for victims of domestic violence and their friends/family, as well as program and shelter providers, to quickly find services and information best suited to their location, language and needs.
DomesticShelters.org is a service that is free to the public and is provided and operated by non profit Theresa’s Fund. Contact us and follow us:Twitter, Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn, RSS. A group comprised of authors, academics, researchers, program operators and nationally-recognized domestic violence experts serves on the Advisory Group of DomesticShelters.org.
We welcome you to review our Impact Report, published in August 2016. In it you’ll learn about how Theresa’s Fund came to be in 1992, why Theresa’s Fund launched DomesticShelters.org in August 2014, and the data that has been gathered since to help us understand the positive influence our work is having on people. Theresa’s Fund is an Arizona-based 501(c)3 non-profit charity started in 1992 by Preston V. McMurry, Jr. Originally, and at a time when domestic violence wasn’t yet a headline, Theresa’s Fund focused on changing the landscape of domestic violence services in its home state through grant making, board development and fundraising for Arizona-based organizations like East Valley Child Crisis Center, Sojourner Center, Florence Crittenden, Emerge, UMOM, and West Valley Child Crisis Center. In 2014, it developed the DomesticShelters.org concept as a way to expand its reach to people across the U.S./Canada.

Angels on Patrol supports families in crisis and youth who have either been abused or neglected and/or whose caregivers are facing extreme financial hardship identified by Phoenix and Tempe Police Officers.
Angels on Patrol:
• Has emergency funds available for officers who identify a crisis situation involving youth or families
• Funds recreational and enrichment opportunities for youth
The mission of Angels on Patrol is to:
• Help children and families in crisis who are identified by law enforcement
• Enhance the public’s perception of law enforcement
• Help officers become more than a “band-aid” and positively affect families after the initial crisis has passed.
Due to the nature of their profession, officers often come across horrendous crisis situations. Officers provide immediate assistance and ensure that the situation is stable before leaving. However, many officers have the desire to help families beyond the immediate situation. Angels on Patrol helps officers do this. By helping families and children past their immediate crisis situation, the families and the public have an additional opportunity to see officers as individuals who care about the community they serve.

Mother’s Grace foundation is dedicated to the support of Mothers and children who have endured life tragedies. By providing financial support and guidance, Mother’s Grace empowers these women to reach their goals of making a difference in their communities by helping others inflicted with similar circumstances.
Mother’s Grace remains committed to healing the world one mother at a time. Our goal is to create the opportunity and secure funding streams for these specific endeavors. We wish to empower these Mothers to take leadership roles and support their desire to heal, rebuild, and revitalize their communities.
We are a grassroots foundation, bringing forth gifts of time, talent, and funds. We believe the real power of this foundation comes from Mothers who have survived loss and grief and have overcome through faith and perseverance. These Mothers touch the lives of others dealing with similar circumstances in their own communities. Mother’s Grace will support these Mothers in the following ways:
- MG gives financial support to those in immediate need while trying to deal with the burden of devastating illness/loss, we step in and are able to help with utility bills, medications/testing, or any ancillary service that may support them during their time of need.
- MG also supports children dealing with the loss/absence of a Mother or in need of a Mother’s mentorship. We currently sponsor a group of African Refugee children with a book club, life skill development, and scholarship support. In addition we have gone to schools/organizations to teach outreach skills to children and sponsor school fundraising that in turn sponsors schools and families in need (IE support for families of the recent natural disasters in the South/Midwest
- Finally MG awards 4-5 grants per year to Mothers who have transformed their personal tragedy into grace filled action. Through their spiritual journey, and first hand experience they wish to start their own 501c3 organization with an ultimate goal to help others suffering with similar crisis. These grants often help with the start up costs associated with a 501c3. (IE attorney’s fees, accounting, marketing etc.)
Mother’s Grace is a 501c3 foundation. http://mothers-grace.org/index.html
