Hope’s Wings Domestic Violence Shelter Facility
Hope’s Wings Domestic Violence Program’s emergency shelter is called the Marilyn Isaacs House, named for a great woman who was committed to teens, women, and women’s issues in Madison County. Marilyn Isaacs was a beloved teacher, softball coach, and mentor to many.
The Marilyn Isaacs House is a 5,000 square foot facility located on 5 acres of beautiful farm land in Madison County.
Hope’s Wings operates an emergency shelter that provides emergency housing to individuals fleeing an abuser. All of our shelter residents attend weekly workshops, which provide support for domestic violence survivors, with self-esteem building, stress management, parenting and child development workshops, and budgeting.
