Our Mission

For over 40 years, Care Lodge has provided essential services and emergency shelter to victims of domestic violence in east central Mississippi. 

All supportive services for victims are free of charge and completely confidential. Information and assistance is available, in-person or virtually, whether individuals are living in the community or living in shelter. Please call and speak with an advocate about any questions or concerns you may have about increasing your safety.

You do not have to be in crisis to call Care Lodge. Many people call to learn about their options for increasing personal safety or to help someone they care about who is dealing with an abusive relationship. Some may even call about volunteer opportunities or request a presentation to educate others about domestic violence. Whether you call the office number or the 24-hour line, a member of our caring team will get you in touch with the right person to help you meet your need.

Without my prompting, the very same client sitting next to me became an advocate herself!

I have learned that I must step outside of my own experiences and listen intently to the unique needs of the person in front of me.
