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!

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.

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.
