Arbour House

24-Hour Emergency Safe House

Arbour House is JBWS' safe home. There we provide temporary housing for women and children who need a safe place to stay. Arbour House is a beautiful, large, warm, and comfortable home. But most of all is secure. Protection from the abuser is the primary reason why women come to our safe house.

Women and their children stay in private bedrooms and share the living room and kitchen areas with other families. Individual and group counseling are available. Women who come to Arbour House continue their daily activities, such as supervising their children, shopping for food, preparing meals, and can continue going to work. Housing, financial and legal resource referrals are available to women and their children, who may stay in the shelter for up to 60 days.

If you or someone you know is in danger and may need to come to the Arbour House, please call our 24-hour helpline: 973-267-4763 or 1-877-R-U-ABUSED.
