An application is circulated to get admission into the shelter home. For getting admission into the shelter home, the helpless adolescent girls and women of the society have to fulfill some terms and conditions. A helpless victim is nominated through proper investigation, certificate from local government representative, interview and consent from their guardians. Emphasis is given to provide shelter of adolescent girls and women such as: acid survivor, divorced, separated, victim of rape, insecure physically, mentally and socially.  After getting admission into the shelter home, SUS takes initiative to check her physical condition through medical checkup.
