Family Violence Shelter Center
The Ada Carey Center for Women & Children provides comprehensive residential shelter services for women who are victims of family violence and their children. Care provided at the center includes crisis intervention, medical accompaniment, transportation, legal assistance in the civil and criminal justice system, information and education arrangements for children, help in obtaining community services, individual and group counseling, job search assistance, and life skills training.
The Ada Carey Center for Women & Children, Mission Granbury’s 7,000 square foot shelter for victims of family violence, opened in August, 2006. The beautiful new facility more than doubled our capacity to provide a safe haven for battered women and their children.
This emergency shelter for domestic violence victims and their children is located in a safe, secure area of Hood County and staffed 24/7. During 2010, 228 women & children received shelter and support services. This is a 55% increase from the previous year.
Under the supervision of the Victims’ Assistance Program Director, staff at the Ada Carey Center advocate for victims and work to ensure that all women and children at the shelter receive comprehensive case management services.
Priority for shelter services is given to those in immediate danger or emergency situations. Eligibility for services is determined by self-report, law enforcement referral/report, hospital referral/report, or criminal justice system referral/report.
Mission Granbury is the only resource for family violence victims in Hood County. Mission Granbury also provides shelter services for Erath County, which has some victims’ assistance services but no family violence shelter, and for Somervell County, which has no family violence victims’ assistance provider of any kind.
