Domestic Violence Shelters Insurance


Women & Domestic Violence Shelters

The team at NIS (Nonprofit Insurance Services) appreciates what you do for victims of domestic violence and are here to serve organizations like yours.

As a domestic violence shelter or women’s shelter, you face risk in a different way from those you serve and you need to protect yourself from those risks and exposures.

  • 1 in 4 women will be victims of severe violence by an intimate partner in their lifetimes.
  • 1 in 7 men will be victims of severe violence by an intimate partner in their lifetimes.
  • 10,000,000 children are exposed to domestic violence every year.

Every day, in almost every aspect of your operation, you face risks that could damage or ruin your organization, not allowing the greatly needed services of your operation to continue.

  • A women’s shelter in Maine was sued by a Men’s Rights Activist Group for discriminating gender.
  • Shelters in Virginia and Maryland are being sued by families claiming wrongful death charges.
  • A domestic violence shelter in New Jersey was set on fire by an irate father and husband of one of the shelter’s victims.
  • A domestic violence shelter in Pennsylvania is in litigation resulting from the need to forcefully remove a violent boyfriend of one of the shelter’s victims.

Let’s not forget the day to day risks you take: Will all of the shelter residents get along? Is the property safe for residents to reside in? What will Mother Nature have in store for us next?

The team at NIS has worked with shelters for over 28 years to provide insurance protection and tools to assist shelters in reducing their exposure to an incident, claim or loss.

Your local insurance agent could possibly provide insurance for your shelter. However, would they have the experience, knowledge and resources to provide you the insurance protection and – just as importantly – the tools to reduce losses in your shelter?

Isn’t it time you looked to NIS for insurance protection specifically tailored to your needs by a company with a vast wealth of experience providing coverage to women and domestic shelters like yours?
