Dallas Opens First Battered Men’s Shelter


Domestic violence is a major issue for women, but it’s also a issue for men, so much so that the Dallas Family Place has opened the first shelter in Texas dedicated specifically for male victims of domestic violence.

The shelter has 21 beds and provides private rooms to accommodate men with children.

“The Family Place believes that everyone should feel safe in their own home, regardless of gender,” said Paige Flink, CEO of The Family Place. “We have seen an increasing need for this in our community and want to provide services specifically tailored to this group.”

If you or someone you know needs assistance call the Family Place 24-hour hotline at (214) 941-1991.
