It is important to note that the we are not a shelter, but we can provide shelter resources and safety planning.

  • Take Back the Night is an annual event at UM-Dearborn that includes a rally and march through the campus to symbolically reclaim the streets. The event concludes with survivors of domestic and sexual violence telling their stories, often sharing the experiences in public for the first time. Learn more about Take Back the Night.
  • The Vagina Monologues is based on V-Day Founder/playwright Eve Ensler's interviews with more than 200 women. With humor and grace the piece celebrates women's sexuality and strength. Through this play and the liberation of this one word, countless women throughout the world have taken control of their bodies and their lives. V-Day is a global activist movement to end violence against women and girls, and performance of The Vagina Monologues is V-Day's most chosen creative vehicle to bring the message forward.
