Call 800-799-7233, or 2-1-1
There are resources to help victims and survivors of domestic violence. From emergency shelter to legal advocacy to food assistance for those transitioning to a life free of violence, there is help.
If you or a loved one is trapped in an abusive relationship, get help! Call The Hotline at 800-799-7233, or 2-1-1 for local shelters and resources, and consider Families to Freedom as part of your plan to get away.
Families to Freedom
Families to Freedom, a North Texas nonprofit, transports victims of domestic abuse to safety.
Families to Freedom Helpline is open Mon-Fri 8-5pm CT at 972-885-7020
Non-Citizens and Immigrants
Families to Freedom does not report citizenship to any agency. We believe a person who needs safety from an abusive relationship deserves service regardless of their immigration status. While we will equally serve to help victims get to safety, our travel services cannot cross international borders. Unfortunately, we currently do not have phone support for non-English speakers at this time.
Men Can Be Victims
According to a CDC study in 2011, the lifetime prevalence of physical violence by an intimate partner was estimated to be 27.5% for men. Battered men often face fewer resources for safety and justice. At Families to Freedom, we are prepared to serve men equally as women.
Intimate partner violence exists in LGBT relationships at a proportionally higher rate than non-LGBT relationships. We serve LGBT victims as equally as all.

Genesis Womens Shelter and Support
Emergency Hotline: 214.946.HELP (4357)
Main Outreach Office: 214.389.7700
Shelter Ministries of Dallas began operating Genesis Women's Shelter & Support in 1985 as a safe haven for women and children fleeing an immediate threat of domestic violence. To protect our clients' safety, our Emergency Shelter sits at an undisclosed location. Women and their children are welcome to stay at the emergency shelter for up to six weeks.
Each year more than 650 women and children come through our doors looking for one thing: safety. Most people arrive with nothing but the clothes on their back after making the brave decision that ultimately saves their lives. These women suddenly find themselves without a home or a way to feed their families and it is up to us to give them hope that there is a better life waiting for them.
Each person staying in our Shelter attends weekly individual and group therapy for the duration of their stay. Additionally, Emergency Shelter children may attend the on-site alternative Simmons School. During this time, our Counselors and Case Managers guide them through the healing process and assist them in setting up a new life and a brighter future.
