Tubman is a statewide community resource providing family crisis and support services including safe shelter, legal services, counseling and therapy, elder care resources, youth programs and community education.

Harriet Tubman Center East is now providing safe and secure housing for 65 women and children. State bond funds ($2 million) were critical in leveraging an additional $4.9 million in funds that allowed the conversion of three floors to be upgraded for families experiencing domestic violence. Legislative Priorities  Support for up to $720,000 to complete the remaining two floors (20,000 square feet) to provide an additional 36 shelter rooms and common space for underserved victims of violence and exploitation and their children.
