The Women's Survival Space (WSS) is a not-for-profit shelter operated by the Center Against Domestic Violence. WSS provides a 90-day living space for women and their families who have suffered domestic violence in their lives. JLB volunteers work with both the women and children to provide informal mentoring and recreational activities. The JLB provides the only source of non-essential programming available to the residents of the shelter during their stay, allowing them to see beyond their immediate circumstances.
