Shelter House rape crisis center

Shelter House is now the certified rape crisis center for Okaloosa and Walton counties after receiving official notification from the Florida Council Against Sexual Violence.

Shelter House added a full-time sexual violence program coordinator to our staff and put all of the existing advocates through rigorous training on working with sexual violence victims. As always, all domestic and sexual violence services are confidential and provided at no charge to participants.

The 24/7 hotline number for domestic and sexual violence victims is 850-863-4777.
