Violence Against Women Program

Mission Statement: To provide prevention and awareness, and to increase victim safety and offender accountability.

About Us
The Violence Against Women
program offers confidential support services to victims of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking. The service area consists of all of Pawnee County regardless of age, economic status, race, religion or education background although Pawnee members and Native American women have priority. The goal of this outreach involves prevention, victim services and criminal justice intervention.

Services
Victim Services
Based on a strengths perspective, the program provides services such as case management, emergency shelter services, court accompaniment and advocacy, 24-hour crisis intervention, information/referrals, and development and distribution of relevant materials.  

Criminal Justice Intervention
Legal Assistance is offered to Native American victims; you must possess a CDIB (Card of Degree of Indian Blood) and live in Pawnee County. The project will undertake activities necessary to implement enhanced sentencing.

Prevention
Individualized domestic violence education classes (not assessments), training and outreach activities are offered and developed.

You Can Help
Chances are you know a woman who is in a violent relationship -a friend, co-worker or family member. Reach out to her. Letting her know that you are concerned can break through the stigma, isolation, shame and denial of domestic violence. Speaking up against domestic violence tells abusers and the rest of the community that domestic violence is  unacceptable.

Donate
New to slightly used clothes, shoes, and household items to assist those who are building new lives. Thank you for your support!
