Supporting Domestic Abuse Survivors

Two decades ago, Federation Women’s Philanthropy created a movement to support survivors of domestic abuse, which resulted in the Shalom Bayit (Peace in the Home) program. Now managed by Federation partner agency Jewish Community Services of South Florida (JCS), Shalom Bayit provides short- and long-term compassionate help to domestic abuse survivors and their children as they transition to a new life. Observant and kosher needs can also be accommodated. If you are in an abusive relationship and need help, please contact the JCS Shalom Bayit Hotline at 305.576.1818. All calls and assistance are handled in the strictest confidence.
