Emergency Shelter

Safelight is well known to the public for its shelter for abused women, men and their children.

Our shelter is one of the largest in Western North Carolina but we offer more than a safe place to stay. Services are available for free to survivors of interpersonal violence in shelter and outreach (non-shelter). At the present time, the shelter is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

If you are in Immediate Danger, Call 9-1-1
