Serving Miami County for more than 40 years
The Family Abuse Shelter, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, was founded in 1979 by Miami County Deputy Sheriff Barbel Adkins, who saw a better solution for sheltering domestic violence victims that were often housed temporarily in the county jail for their protection.
With financial assistance from local churches, schools, and civic organizations, a permanent shelter was established as a safe haven for domestic violence and homelessness victims at the Franklin House in downtown Troy, Ohio (16 Franklin St) through 2020.
Today, the Family Abuse Shelter of Miami County has expanded into a newly remodeled 7,370 square-foot facility that is energy-efficient, handicapped accessible, and has separate living spaces for those in need. It is now located at 530 Crescent Drive in Troy, Ohio.
