Domestic Violence shelter now called Roots of Courage

Jefferson County-based Family Tree is pleased to announce the name change of Women In Crisis, the domestic violence emergency shelter, to Roots of Courage.

In a statement, the organization stated that “This change is part of a continuing effort to be more inclusive and focused on empowerment for those served by Family Tree.”

We recognize the significance of having a name that is not only aligned with Family Tree’s mission and philosophy to be inclusive of all gender identities, but one that shares a positive, powerful and uplifting message,” said Shelter Director Tirzah Stein.

The purpose of Roots of Courage (ROC) is to help keep survivors safe from domestic violence by providing a 24-hour crisis line, emergency shelter, safety planning, advocacy, community resources, health care and other supportive services.

Providing a confidential place to stay, food and shelter are all components of the services offered at the shelter. Additionally, advocacy, support, information, and community resources are also offered.

Roots of Courage can be reached through a 24-hour hotline at (303) 420-6752.

More information about the shelter, and other child abuse, domestic violence and homelessness resources are available at www.thefamilytree.org.
