Ways to Support
Your support of Crisis Intervention Services ensures that we can continue to work towards a violence-free community. Provide Safe Housing to Women and Children in danger, Support Survivors of Sexual Violence as they work through their healing journey to restoration and a new life.
Because of you, we have provided over 2,500 hours of advocacy to victims, over 5,000 nights of protective shelter, and provided 88 abused children a warm bed, a meal, unconditional support, and encouragement- that was just in 2020 alone! Will you make a positive contribution towards our vision of a more secure tomorrow for individuals and families in Southeast Iowa?
You can make a difference in families in your community for a stronger tomorrow.
