Imagine what it would be like to live in fear every minute of your life, even while you're sleeping. Imagine having to constantly worry about the safety of your children when they're at home. Imagine if you were told every day that you weren’t worth anything better, and that you weren't worth helping. Imagine not knowing there was a way out.

Last year alone, we saw 3,700 women and children at our emergency shelter, transitional housing apartments, and nonresidential counseling office. The women who come to us are in a fight for their life. We aim to walk alongside each woman and tell her she is not alone and she deserves to feel safe and happy.

If we truly want to end domestic violence, we need to see these women for who they are - our mothers, daughters, sisters, friends and colleagues. Domestic violence can affect anyone, regardless of age, ethnicity or socioeconomic class. We will not stop until all women and children are safe in their own homes. 

Genesis Women’s Shelter was founded with a goal to not just help women, but to completely eradicate domestic violence. We have formulated our services to address the issue holistically and give each woman the same message: there is help and there is hope. This year for North Texas Giving Day, join us in raising life-saving funds for the women and children we serve to send the message that there is help and there is hope.


Genesis' mission is to provide safety, shelter and support for women and children who have experienced domestic violence, and to raise awareness regarding its cause, prevalence and impact. We are looking to create a societal shift on how people think about domestic violence. In order for that to happen we need everyone to share the same message that there is help and there is hope. It will take all facets of society going in the same direction to invoke a real change. For every woman in an abusive situation, there is help and there is hope. Any woman, any age, any race, any religion, anywhere can be affected - but it does not define who she is.

Equity Statement

Genesis’ core mission is to empower women and children by offering safety, shelter and support. In that same regard, we strive to create a workplace as diverse as the communities we serve and where everyone feels empowered to be their full, authentic selves. With these guiding principles, we commit to inclusion across race, gender, age, religion, sexual orientation, identity and experience so we may listen, learn, work together and succeed as a team.
