EXIT SAFELY!

We Have Exciting News!

Urban Resource Institute and the Center Against Domestic Violence have merged under the single entity of Urban Resource Institute. Together the unified organizations will shelter more than 1,000 survivors and their families by the Fall of 2018 and be the largest provider of domestic violence shelter services in New York State. Our shared purpose is responding to, preventing and ending domestic violence while empowering those who have or are healing from abuse to live the safest and fullest lives possible.
