Holly's House provides a safe and non-threatening environment for victims of sexual abuse. They play a vital role in our community and fill a much needed niche. When I toured the facilities, I was most impressed with the staff and the premises and the extra effort and thought they have put into everything to make the experiences there the best they can be under very difficult circumstances. I applaud the board, the employees, and the volunteers for being a beacon of light in the Evansville area.

I have been involved with Holly's House almost from it's inception, having become a Board Member after the idea was launched, but prior to the actual, physical location being completed. I have prosecuted many cases that have been investigated utilizing the services of Holly's House. The cases I am presented from this organization, are so much more thorough in their presentation, and therefore, much easier to prosecute than others. Our community is very fortunate to have such an organization, with the dedication of a staff who is fully vested with the intent and ideals of protecting those who find it hard to protect themselves.

My employment as a sex crimes/child victim crimes prosecutor.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

require all local agencies utilize their services in order to improve the conviction rate of perpetrators of crimes against children.

Holly's House provides a safe haven for children who have been abused. I have witnessed the caring and compassionate way the staff handles the victims of abuse at the house. Everyone one of the staff believes in the Holly's House mission and it is evident in the way they conduct every day business at the House. Holly's House partner agencies are also fully engaged in the advocacy center. A victim can be interviewed once, and in a safe place where everyone is focused on the victim.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Raise more funds to help expand our services and reach more people who need help.

Holly knows first-hand the pain of violent and sexual crimes. Her story is so powerful, and despite the suffering in her life, she has gone on to help others heal from their pain. This is a worthy charity!
