APNA GHAR'S NEW SAFE HOME
We completed the construction of a purpose built, efficient and functional safe home/ emergency shelter to provide emergency housing to survivors of gender violence. The facility doubles the agency’s capacity to provide survivors of abuse, violence and trauma a home-like environment where they can gain safety, stability and self-sufficiency. The new safe home is designed to promote healing, with private spaces for physical health care, counseling, advocacy, and case management as well as communal space for therapeutic and group activities. We broke ground in March of 2016 and completed construction in January of 2017. We will be able to house approximately 30 women and children at a time and we expect to serve 100-120 adult and child survivors each year in the new safe home.
