Angel Step Inn was established by SCADP in 1995 as the first domestic violence emergency shelter in California for battered, substance-addicted women and their children. The program has a static capacity of 30 beds. The emergency shelter is located in Los Angeles County and is funded through the California Office of Emergency Services, the Emergency Housing and Assistance Program, and the City of Los Angeles Housing and Community Investment Department.


Angel Step Inn provides shelter and a 30- to 45-day emergency program of domestic violence counseling for women with co-morbid battering. Our emergency shelters provide on-site ducation, case management, linkage and transportation to social services, as well as discharge planning for transition to safe or permanent housing.
