  • Support groups for adults and children who have been impacted by domestic violence or sexual assault
  • Counseling and mental health treatment
  • Transitional housing in order to address homelessness
  • Legal assistance, including referrals to legal resources
  • Information and referrals to available resources in the community
  • Community education and outreach to provide increased understanding on domestic violence and sexual assault issues
  • Advocacy for legal issues and with medical professionals when needed.
