Domestic Violence Services
With social distancing guidelines in place, COVID-19 creates a unique circumstance that may present additional dangers for victims of domestic violence. Financial strain, increased isolation, and constant proximity to an abuser may all negatively impact the safety of a survivor.
At this time, safety planning is crucial for survival. To speak to a local advocate from Twin City Mission Domestic Violence Services, please call 979-775-2255.
Visit the links below for more information about safety planning at this time.

Twin City Mission’s Domestic Violence Program provides services to victims of domestic violence and dating violence in all seven counties of the Brazos Valley: Brazos, Burleson, Grimes, Leon, Madison, Robertson, and Washington. Services are provided at no cost and include shelter, counseling, case management, legal advocacy, safety planning, and career assistance.
Victims and their children in need of emergency shelter are referred to Phoebe’s Home, a component of Twin City Mission’s DVS Program. Founded in 1978, Phoebe’s Home is a 24-hour emergency shelter providing nutritional meals, laundry facilities, daily needs (toiletries, clothing), transportation, and recreational activities for residents.
Victims who are not seeking emergency shelter can receive nonresidential services in their county of residence at no cost.
