Domestic Violence Shelter

Safe Alliance's Clyde & Ethel Dickson Domestic Violence Shelter serves Mecklenburg County residents in imminent danger ready to escape from a domestic violence situation. The shelter has 19 apartment-style suites for families and 10 units for single adults.​​​​​

The shelter is located on a 5-acre site in Charlotte convenient to public transportation and other support services. The 40,000-square foot facility has state-of-the-art security and multi-purpose space for supportive services that can help residents heal from the trauma of abuse and improve their economic security including counseling, substance use services, support groups, individual advocacy, and life skills and career planning services. Dedicated spaces include a cafeteria and age-appropriate gathering spaces for children, teens, and adults.

We are able to offer clients in imminent danger of physical violence secure and safe housing based on each family's individual needs and service plan. Along with supportive services, we provide support for basic needs, including three daily meals, clothing referrals, toiletries, and personal items
