The Diane Peppler Emergency Shelter, a 21-bed residential facility located in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan, provides temporary and emergency shelter for all adults and their children victimized by domestic violence. Our shelter is open and a crisis line is in operation 365 days a year, 24 hours a day. We provide all services free of charge.
While in shelter, clients receive support services which enable them to make informed choices in a safe and supportive environment. Due to the urgent nature of shelter intakes, personal care items are often provided, which can include: hygiene items, clothing, and medications to name a few.
During a shelter stay, we provide support, information, referrals, and advocacy for legal, health, housing, financial and transportation needs. The Diane Peppler Resource Center provides everything victims and their children need to stay safe.
No survivor or dependent of a survivor will be denied services because of their race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religious affiliation, nationality, disability or medical condition.
To access our emergency shelter call our 24-hour Hotline: 1-800-882-1515. Our Hotline advocates are trained to aid in the event of an emergency call. Advocates can help build a safety plan and provide information about all Diane Peppler Resource Center programs and services.
