Freedom Ranch is Eagle County’s first and only safehouse and emergency shelter for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. The location of the shelter is kept confidential to protect the safety and security of residents. Residents have the support of the shelter manager and other residents through shared living, dining, and children’s areas. Residents work closely with their advocate to determine plans following their stay at Freedom Ranch.
Shelter services are also available to male victims of violence through our Safe Nights program. This program provides short-term safe housing through cooperative agreements with local hotels. Victims utilizing our Safe Nights program work closely with an advocate to establish long-term plans for housing.
Bright Future provides, on average, 3,000 nights of emergency shelter for families and individuals fleeing violence. The program cost is approximately $62.50 per night.
