How We Can Help
We provide free and confidential services to men, women, and children affected by domestic violence, human trafficking, homicide and other violent crimes.
24 Hour Crisis Hotline
Our hotline is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Victims, survivors, friends, family members – anyone can call and visit with our professional and compassionate advocates. Someone is always available to dispatch in emergency situations. No matter the day or time – we’re here for you.
Safety planning is a useful tool in determining the best ways for you to remain safe in various situations. It involves ways to cope with emotions, speak about your abuse, seek legal help and more. When in crisis situations, it’s often hard to think clearly and make logical decisions about your safety. Making a personalized plan, even if some aspects may seem obvious, can help you protect yourself.
Our advocates will help you develop your personalized safety plan. Types of safety planning include:
- Staying safe while in an abusive relationship
- Children and pets
- Leaving and After

Legal, Personal & Mobile Advocacy
Advocate by definition means to support another person or cause. We’re here to support all victims and survivors of domestic violence. We provide aid in filing legal documents, such as protection orders, and court accompaniment. We will help provide you with all of your available options. Our advocates are mobile – we will travel to meet with you as needed.
Support groups are established as needed in our various counties. These groups offer a chance for victims & survivors to encourage and comfort one another, as well as heal together. Support groups offer a safe place to share or just listen. Currently, we have a support group available in Carroll, Iowa. Contact us to join. If you’re interested in having a support group in your area, please contact us.
