How to Help Your Children

Children are particularly vulnerable as victims of and witnesses to domestic violence, sexual abuse and assault. Their safety is the first and most important concern to address, as well as helping them develop strategies to cope with trauma.

If you have children and are homeless or experiencing domestic abuse, please contact House of Ruth at 202-667-7001 ext. 320 or intake@houseofruth.org to understand how we might help.

If you are homeless or live in a transitional living program and need day care for your children, please contact Kidspace at 202-667-7001, ext. 223 or intake@houseofruth.org. Kidspace provides a developmental day care program for children ages six weeks to five years old.
