Mission Statement

House of Ruth’s mission is two-fold: (1) To advocate for and assist women and children victimized by domestic violence and children exposed to violence in transforming their lives by providing culturally competent shelter, programs, opportunities, and education; and (2) To contribute to social change through intervention, education, prevention programs and community awareness.


House of Ruth has been providing life-saving domestic violence services for residents of eastern Los Angeles and western San Bernardino counties since 1977. Participation in House of Ruth programming is open to all battered women and children. Many of House of Ruth’s services are available in both Spanish and English and are free of charge. There shall be no discrimination on the basis of race, color, gender, age, disability, ancestry, religion, national origin, medical condition, marital status, veteran status, or sexual orientation.

Our services are divided into the following programs:

  • Residential Programs: Emergency and Transitional Shelter
  • Children’s Programs
  • Counseling
  • Community Services
  • Prevention and Outreach

We also provide comprehensive case management, ongoing education for minor children, and assistance with access to healthcare. In addition, House of Ruth provides transitional housing for up to two years and a counseling program for children exposed to violence in their homes, communities, or schools.

House of Ruth operates independently with one outreach and administrative office in Los Angeles County, one outreach office in San Bernardino County and an emergency and transitional shelter facility in an undisclosed location.
