Domestic Violence is any behaviour by a person in a co-habitation relationship, usually one family member against another, which threatens or endangers the personal, mental or physical wellbeing or security of another..
The Shelter serves the Trinidad and Tobago community through a comprehensive series of treatment and prevention services.
On Saturday the 15th September, 2018, The Shelter for Battered Women and Children will temporarily close its residency intake programme to begin much-needed renovations to the safe house. However, administrative services including the counselling programme for women and children will continue to be offered to former residents.
In honour and unqualified respect for all women for their unselfish contribution to humanity, restless pursuit for fairness and equality in every sphere of endeavour, it is time women stand side by side in our collective effort to make the world a better, safer and welcoming place.

All across Trinidad and Tobago too many women have sought and continue to seek safety against violence and abuse.
