The Domestic Violence Center of Santa Clarita was initially established in 1983. Since that time we have housed hundreds of women and children at our shelter. We would like to extend an opportunity to our community to help with the financial need of the shelter.

It takes an average of $170,000/year to keep our shelter running (including staffing, food, clothing, electricity, etc)

This breaks down to about $14,200/month!!

**Below are some breakdowns of estimated average monthly costs. Currently our shelter can house 3 small families or 9 single women.
Meals for shelter clients

Transportation for shelter client
