The Center for Women and Families helps victims of intimate partner abuse or sexual violence to become survivors through supportive services, community education, and cooperative partnerships that foster hope, promote self-sufficiency, and rebuild lives. The Center operates five regional locations in Kentuckiana, three of which provide emergency shelter, transitional housing and long term housing options. Many of our clients arrive at The Center with nothing but the clothes on their backs and a few precious possessions. Emergency shelter is a critical first step to healing for many survivors of intimate partner abuse or sexual violence. The Center’s residential facilities provide safe, temporary haven. During the first few days of their stay, we provide clients with comfortable beds, warm meals, clean clothes, crisis counseling and safety planning. Our Family Advocates help residents plan their unique journeys of healing and offer ongoing support.
If you or someone you love has experienced sexual assault or partner abuse at any point, help is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year through The Center’s toll-free crisis line: 1-844-BE-SAFE-1.
