Micah’s Place started in 1999, with a group of concerned citizens who knew that survivors of domestic violence needed a safe place to go. Prior to Micah’s Place, victims of domestic violence and their children had to go outside of the county, if they even had transportation. Micah’s Place, Inc. was incorporated in October of 2000 and registered as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in March of 2001.
In June of 2003, Micah’s Place began offering outreach services, information and referrals via a 24-hour toll-free hotline. In December of 2003 the organization opened a 16-bed emergency shelter for victims of domestic violence. The Department of Children and Families certified Micah’s Place in 2004 as the 41st center in the state.
Micah’s Place programs have grown exponentially to meet the needs of our community, as resources became available. That need continues to grow with our Community.
