What should I pack when leaving for a domestic violence shelter?

When leaving for a domestic violence shelter, it is important to pack essential items for yourself and your children, if they are accompanying you. These items may include clothing, personal hygiene products, important documents, medication, and a few comfort items like a favorite toy or blanket for children. However, do not let the lack of certain items prevent you from seeking shelter, as most shelters can provide you with basic necessities. Prioritize your safety and leave when it is safe to do so.
