Help Us Help OUR Community

We here at Esther House believe firmly that EVERYone deserves to live a life free from fear, abuse, and violence.  As a nonprofit organization we rely heavily on grantors for funding; however, without support from the local community we could never carry through with all that we do.  Without YOU we are limited in the stretch of our reach.

From safe shelter to life skills education and just about everything in between, Esther House strives to assist all PEOPLE, and we would love for you to join us in fulfilling our mission.

Whether you are interested in short-term or committed long-term volunteer opportunities, Esther House would love to have you on board!

Thank you, Esther House! You literally saved my life!  The Staff is so understanding and helpful.  With your help, I realize that I deserved so much better than what I was getting.  I am a new person!  And I am setting higher standards for anyone I accept into my life!

I was afraid to ask for help but I knew I had to do something – the abuse was becoming more frequent and getting worse.  I did a Google search and came across Esther House and called their Crisis Hotline.  The woman I spoke to was very helpful and didn’t judge me.  She helped me make a safety plan so when I decided it was time to leave I could do so on my terms and with all things important (money, legal documents, etc.).  I was so ashamed for so long, but the Advocate that helped me emphasized how the abuse I endured was a reflection on HIM and not on me.  Thank you, Esther House.  I am so much happier – and SAFER – now because your Advocate was there when I needed her.

My kids and I needed a place to stay after my baby daddy pointed a gun at me when we were fighting.  When he finally fell asleep, we ran to the neighbor’s house and she helped me call for help.  I called Esther House and luckily they had room in their shelter for us.  When we were at their shelter, they had lots of employees that wanted to help me and make my situation better.  They had an advocate that helped me get a restraining order.  I was worried and scared that I wouldn’t be able to take care of me and my kids, but Esther House made sure we had food to eat and clothes to wear during the time we were there.  The restraining order made my baby daddy get out of the house so me and the kids could go back home, plus he went to jail anyway.  But I am grateful to the people at Esther House for making sure me and my kids were safe and for being so nice.
