Learn More About Us

We are more than a shelter…

Founded in 1976 as Shelter Our Sisters, Center for Hope & Safety provides support and resources to those who have experienced domestic violence in Bergen County. We provide a full suite of services—residential, counseling, legal and economic empowerment—to enable victims to become survivors and heal from the trauma they have experienced. We serve all gender identities and ages. Victims can call our 24/7 hotline (201) 944-9600 even if they aren’t ready to leave an abusive situation. Learn about all our programs and services.
