The Emergency Shelter

"Children who witness incidents of domestic violence (a form of childhood trauma) are at greater risk of serious adult health problems including obesity, cancer, heart disease, depression, substance abuse, tobacco use and unintended pregnancies than peers who did not witness domestic violence"

The Emergency Shelter is accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to victims of domestic violence in the Cayman Islands. Renovated in 2012 through overwhelming community support including donations, in-kind gifts, and hours and hours of volunteer time, our Emergency Shelter has been transformed into a welcoming place for healing. With 4 bedrooms to shelter 26 women and their children, the Emergency Shelter is in a secure, confidential location with onsite 24-hour security.
