Volunteers make a real difference in the lives of the victims at MARYS House. We rely on individual volunteers and groups of volunteers who partner with our staff to help make a difference in the lives that have been broken by violence. To learn about how you can become a volunteer or to find a volunteer opportunity for your group, call our Volunteer Coordinator, at 1.864.855.1708
Part of our Volunteer services include our Board of Directors. All board of director positions are held by volunteers who are committed to our ministry and passionate for ending domestic violence in our community. If you are interested in finding out more about how to serve on our board of directors email email@example.com or see our "Contact Us" page to directly send comments and questions.
MARYS House provides emergency safe shelter for all family members. We are pet-friendly. Leaving a family member behind should never be a decision you have to make to leave the violence. Our pets are part of our family and we do not want them left behind.
MARYS House provides emergency safe shelter for families who are victims of domestic violence. While providing a safe place to stay we also provide food, clothing, personal hygiene items, counseling, resources and referrals according to individual needs. During the stay at our shelter, each client works with our professional staff to identify needs and set goals. Clients receive individual and group counseling, case management, referrals, advocacy, and all basic living necessities during their shelter stay. Follow-up support is available and encouraged for clients who have completed their stay. All services are free of charge for victims and their children.
We serve Pickens County, the Upstate and anyone who is in need of a safe refuge. We aim to provide clients the tools they need to make the permanent changes necessary for a life without domestic violence. We also provide emotional support, with counseling and conversations with other victims. Call 1.864.859.9191 if you need safe shelter.
