The first shelter is on Lagos Mainland with 150-bed capacity and the second shelter is on Lagos Island with 100-bed capacity. Each shelter includes a small clinic with a 24-hour nursing care. Each shelter also has a small Skills Acquisition room where the residents are trained if required to enable them survive financially when they leave the shelter. Counselling, legal representation, medical attention and other relevant services are provided to best support the victims resident at the shelter.
involved in Advocacy programs which seek to educate people on the importance of keeping themselves safe from harm. The Advocacy campaigns move from place to place wherever listening ears can be found. Primary and Secondary schools, and markets have been the main targets. The most notable among our campaigns are the PRECIOUS campaign which call for the safety of women and the girl child, and KNOCK-KNOCK campaign which advocates for the safety of young children.
runs THE CONCERNED MOTHERS group. This is a voluntary group of women who are like social workers. These ladies are available to be called upon in various locations nationwide to assist when there is a case of abuse or neglect. Within the network, they have access to other volunteers and resources needed for an intervention to save the situations. Capacity building training is held periodically on various topics to educate the ladies to enable them upgrade their services.

Many students start earning an income immediately after the course. Counselling sessions, basic medical tests, food and sometimes a stipend for transportation is provided for the students during the training. Project Ayodele started in June 2011.
Mrs. Osinbajo started the STEP UP training program in February 2009. This program trains women and men with skills required to start up a small business. Duration of courses range from between one week to four weeks. It is also mobile and moves from one place to another.
