LeeShore's 34-bed emergency shelter offers safe housing for women and their children who have been victimized by domestic violence and sexual assault.
Pets are permitted with prior approval.
We also arrange for transportation to the shelter on an as needs basis. We also have provided emergency travel assistance to victims who wish to leave the community for safety reasons, within the bounds of local, state and federal laws.
Referrals may be made to The LeeShore Center's Transitional Living Center (TLC) when immediate safety is no longer an issue.
TLC provides long term (up to 2 years) supportive housing for women and children in order to help build a stronger capacity for sustainable life changes.
In a cooperative effort between The LeeShore Center and the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District, staff and volunteers provide age-appropriate Healthy Relationships/Violence Prevention presentations.
The LeeShore Center also welcomes teens to their special space on our website. Here you will find information and resources that you can use for your personal safety and in school or club presentations.
We are eager to build capacity within our community to address the very important issues surrounding power-based violence and to incorporate all of our community's prevention efforts together to develop a safety net within our community. Our focus is primary prevention of power-based violence.
The Central Peninsula Batterers Intervention Program (CPBIP), a component of The LeeShore Center, is a state-approved, 36-week educational program for men who have used violence in an intimate relationship. BIP referrals come from a variety of sources; the State Court System, the Tribal Court System, the Office of Children's Services, and Adult Probation.
While all of our advocates are trained to assist survivors of domestic violence in navigating the justice system, we have an advocate located at the Courthouse to help.
Call 283-8543 to reach the Legal Advocate.
The LeeShore Center has an amazing group of volunteers. Volunteer opportunities range from working directly with clients to carpentry work/repair.
