About Branches Domestic Violence Shelter

Branches Domestic Violence Shelter was established as a non-profit agency in 1980.  Branches works to empower the increasing number of domestic violence victims and their families to break the cycle of domestic violence in our area. 

Aside from providing emergency shelter; Branches offers legal assistance, individual & group counseling, and case management to ready our clients to become independent. 

Currently Branches has one operational emergency housing shelter and four outreach offices located in adjoining counties; Mason, Putnam, Wayne, & Lincoln, to provide additional resources.  ALL of Branches’ services are free of charge. 

Branches served over 2,000 victims in 2012.
