Programs: We offer domestic violence survivors a 24 hr support line, providing survivors with crisis intervention, peer counseling, and emergency referrals. Our one-of-a-kind therapy program connects survivors with on-going support as they deal with the impact abuse has had on their lives, and the lives of their children. In support group, survivors are connected with their peers and see that they aren't alone and no longer have to deal with the isolation and secrecy abuse in the home can breed. In the Latina Program, survivors who are mono-lingual Spanish speakers receive a graduated level of advocacy, as we help them set goals and navigate complicated systems that can help end the cycle of violence in their lives. Our innovative Domestic Violence Information and Referral Center, an online interactive community network involving 34 agencies, provides a safe space for domestic violence service providers to share, network, and access updated information so that to domestic violence survivors.
