Places that Help: Florida
Included in this list are shelters and local programs that provide support, counseling, safety planning, and other services to victims of abuse. If you cannot get help from the organization nearest you, you might want to try calling one in a neighboring county. (If you find inaccurate contact information, please let us know at WomensLawnnedv.org.)
Please note that we list the organizations by the county where the office is located – however, many offices serve multiple counties. You can click the “View All” to look through the complete list of organizations.
