There is a way out. Let us help you.

Our emergency shelter can give you a place to escape so you can feel safe and know that you are on your way to a better life.

Our Mission

Genesis Women's Shelter & Support was first created in 1985 under the operation of Shelter Ministries of Dallas as a safe haven for women and children fleeing an immediate threat of domestic violence. To protect our clients' safety, our Emergency Shelter sits at an undisclosed location. Women and their children are welcome to stay at the emergency shelter for up to six weeks.

Each year more than 650 women and children come through our doors looking for one thing: safety. Most people arrive with nothing but the clothes on their back after making the brave decision that ultimately saves their lives. These women suddenly find themselves without a home or a way to feed their families and it is up to us to give them hope that there is a better life waiting for them.

Each person staying in our Shelter attends weekly individual and group therapy for the duration of their stay. Additionally, Emergency Shelter children may attend the on-site alternative Simmons School. During this time, our Counselors and Case Managers guide them through the healing process and assist them in setting up a new life and a brighter future.


When a woman enters our shelter, we want her to know she is somewhere safe that she can call home. Check out our gallery to see what we do to create a sense of peace and safety Genesis.
