This is a safe place to report intimate crimes for women, men and children. They have a wonderful staff that is trained to help victims and help them become a strong survivor. I have had the pleasure of helping with fund raising for HH. I will continue to do what I can to insure they remain in our community. They have helped over 1300 people since they opened and they help 9 counties in Indiana. I can not say enough about how awesome they are and how much good they do in our community!

Hollys House is a calm and loving environment where individuals go after horrific situations and/or crimes. Instead of sitting in a cold interrogation room, a victim has soothing surroundings and nurturing counselors that ask questions about what has happened.

I am not a victim of any sort of violence. I just wanted to say after watching Holly's story on 48 Hours what an inspirational person she is. I am 41 years and lost my fiance who I was with for over 11 years, my Mom and my friends as well as relatives. I do because of my loses know how hard life can be, but to see a person go through such a horrific event as Holly did and to dedicate herself to help others instead of wallowing in misery, is by all means a hero in my eyes. Holly is someone who was the complete opposite of her attacker, she has a strong value for human life. I admire her strength and moral that she demonstrated by testifying against her attacker/friend's killer. It is awful to see that people can ruthlessly kill, unimaginable. On the other hand someone like Holly, with her value for life, wanting to help others, live for the victims of her attacker, represents the ideal human, a mentor, a hero.

As the mother of a victim, words can not express how thankful I am that Evansville has Holly's House. To compound our daughters plight, she also has Aspergers Syndrome. From the time we arrived to the time we left, this unbearable time in our life stood out as our first step to recovery. We felt somewhat enpowered to know that the truth was heard and no matter what happened in the legal system, the crime had been reported and was now going forward for prosecution. We, as all victims, are blessed to have a safe haven like Holly's House.

I have had the great pleasure of working with members of the Board of Directors and other key people of this organization. The work they do for the community is outstanding and very much a key part of the healing cycle for victims. The devotion to the clients and the understanding and help they provide is a part of the recovery and trust the victims need to get through the difficult time. I am proud to have this organization as part of the Evansville community, we all wish the services were not needed, but we do and they are always ready to handle the details professionally with a caring heart.

Holly's House has helped so many people, it is a fantastic resource in our community. I've talked to so many who have been helped directly or indirectly by Holly's House. Students at University of Southern Indiana also benefit enormously from the connections they have and work they have been able to do there.

What a great resource! Not only does Holly's House provide the perfect, comforting, welcoming environment for victims but the building now houses space for additional resources too - Lampion and Albion Fellows Bacon Center. Then there is the community outreach - Think First Stay Safe was a huge hit at my son's school. Thank you to the staff, supporters, and board of directors.
