Women's Shelters in Maine

Women's SheltersA women's shelter in Maine is a saving grace for women who have been the victims of abuse or find themselves in a bad situation due to the being in a dependent relationship. Numerous studies have found that the reason why many women continue to stay in relationships where they are unhappy is that they feel like they have nowhere else to go. For many battered women, their partners take away their access to money and isolate them from any of the people that may help them. Women's shelters in Maine change all of that and give women a place where they can go and be safe from their abusers. These shelters pride themselves on offering a comfortable room for every woman and her children so that she will not feel trapped in an abusive relationship.

However, room and board are not the only things that are offered by women's shelters in Maine. They also provide intensive counseling services to help women and children come to terms with the abuse and learn the skills to move on. There are also services to help women find permanent housing and employment, which put women on the path to happy and independent lives. The goal is to give each woman the ability to care for herself so that she will not feel as if she has to go back to an abusive relationship just to get by. Many women have gone on to live very productive and successful lives because they were able to get help at a women's shelter in Maine.
