24/7 Crisis Line
Both shelters, Iris Kirby House and O’Shaughnessy House, provide distress line coverage on a 24/7 basis. Many admissions to our shelters are done through the initial step of the woman calling our distress line. We talk to the woman, ensure she is safe, and the process most often begins from this very important point of “starting over.”
