The Door . . .
FamilyTime’s shelter houses up to 38 victims of abuse and their children in a safe and nurturing environment. The women and children receive meals and childcare, as well as counseling, guidance and other needed services in preparation for transition to a more permanent and stable environment. The staff at the shelter is trained to provide assistance and referrals for education, legal, vocational and social services. The shelter is in constant need of baby items, linens, cleaning and household supplies, school supplies, paper products and medicine cabinet supplies.
Opened in 1996, “The Door” continues to be the only all-inclusive shelter and crisis center in Northeast Harris County serving victims of domestic violence and their children. Each year FamilyTime’s emergency shelter serves more than 400 victims of domestic violence.
