Gentle Ironhawk Shelter was organized as a non-profit organization in the State of Utah in 2000, and received its 501(c)(3) designation on 10/2/2001.In the fall of 2004, the Shelter received USDOJ funds for Rural DV and Child Victimization and Legal Assistance to Victims. In 2006, these grants were again awarded throughout 2008.The shelter carries a large case load of non residential legal victims and victims in counseling and after care. Much of the growth can be contributed to our sensitivity to the diverse population and their particular needs in multi-jurisdictions. Our mission is to protect battered women of diverse cultures and backgrounds and their children by providing a safe environment where victims of DV can heal, be validated for who they are, be educated, receive western, traditional, and/or faith based counseling, identify resources in multiple jurisdictions, and break free from the cycle of violence while giving value to the core beliefs in the cultures we serve.
