The Resource Center of Somerset
The Resource Center of Somerset, Inc. is a non-profit organization exclusively dedicated to serving those whose lives have been impacted by domestic abuse. We have advocated and provided services for more than 30 years. Our mission is to end domestic abuse and empower victims by providing protection, education and resources. We are committed to providing quality services in all areas of operations in an efficient and effective manner. Our goal is to grow and adapt our services to meet the changing needs of our clients.
Originally named The Resource Center for Women and Their Families and founded by a small group of volunteers in 1979, the Resource Center of Somerset provides services that are based on the principles of respect for others and empowerment of those who, due to abuse, have lost their voices. Empowerment and self determination constitute the core of the agency’s values which permeate every aspect of the services offered to victims of abuse and their children. Other values we believe in include confidentiality and privacy, integrity and consistency as well as respect for individuals’ diversity and beliefs.
As a round-the-clock program, the Resource Center stands ready to help by providing a safe, supportive and empowering environment that promotes healing and assists individuals as they engage in their journey from victims to survivors. Our Services include not only emergency shelter but legal advocacy, outreach counseling, community education, volunteer Domestic Violence Response Teams working with local police departments, transitional housing and more. Services are provided to survivors of domestic abuse, women, men and children, free of charge, confidential, and provided in English and Spanish.
