River House is a Communal living residence. We have 6 bedrooms that can sleep 4 individuals each for a total of 24 women and children, 3 residential bathrooms, a living room, dining room, playroom, an adult sitting room/library, spacious backyard complete with play equipment and basketball area, meals, clothing, laundry facilities, one-on-one advocacy; all free of charge, but this is not what makes up River House. Here is what you can expect as a residential client at River House:
- support groups
- empowerment and empowering opportunities
- domestic/sexual violence education
- a chance to learn and grow among peers
- a shoulder to cry on (even at 3:00 am)
- a hand up
River House is never where women and children aspire to be, but in times of need, when violence/abuse (Power and Control Wheel, LGBT Power and Control Wheel) occur we are a safe and soft place to land and we’ll be relieved to have you.
