35 years ago, Hubbard House opened its doors of their very first shelter. They were a leader in the woman’s movement and in developing services focused on gender violence. Since then, Hubbard House has grown to offer services not only for women, but also for children and men affected by domestic violence. They have remained a leader in the field and have received both state and national recognition for their efforts.
Hubbard House mission is “Every Relationship Violence-Free”.
They focus on accomplishing three main objectives:
- Safety for victims and their children
- Empower victims
- Social change through education and advocacy
They also reach out to the community to educate youth and professionals in related fields to raise awareness in Duval and Baker counties. The staff and volunteers at Hubbard House serve on numerous committees and task forces that aim to change the community response to domestic violence.
Hubbard House services include:
- Emergency Shelter
- Outreach Center
- Children’s Services
- Batterers’ Intervention
- Training & Education and more
You can learn more about them on the Hubbard House Services page.
