The Verde Valley Sanctuary Shelter offers a confidential refuge for victims of domestic violence and/or sexual assault, and their children, to find stability, respite, support and begin to rebuild their lives. The shelter provides food, clothing, and supportive services.

Our staff immediately address trauma with:

  • Counseling, support and advocacy

Outreach Center

Outreach support services provide confidential assistance to victims of crime who may not need emergency shelter. We assist not only victims of domestic violence and sexual assault but any type of violence.  We offer personalized case management, counseling, safety planning, and day and evening support groups with offices in Cottonwood, Camp Verde and Sedona.

Support groups give participants the skills to recognize the signs of domestic violence, understand the barriers to leaving, and gain education about available legal resources. If you need someone to talk to, our trained staff will help you learn, heal, and empower yourself to create health and safety in or out of your relationship.

Outreach services receive funding from the Victims of Crime Act.

Outreach Center Main Office - 601 W. Mingus Ave., Cottonwood.
