This Year's Project:
Domestic Abuse/Sexual Assault Services is a non-profit organization with a mission to provide free, confidential and empowering services to victims of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking while raising awareness and prevention efforts throughout our communities.
Advocates assist families affected by these terrible crimes in rebuilding their lives through a wide range of services including: a toll-free 24 hour crisis line, crisis support/intervention, emergency shelter and transportation, safety planning, protection order assistance, legal, medical and economic advocacy, information and referrals to other available community resources and limited emergency financial assistance. These services are provided to victims and their families throughout Red Willow, Chase, Dundy, Frontier, Furnas, Hayes and Hitchcock counties.
Education and prevention is also provided throughout southwest Nebraska covering topics such as: domestic violence, dating violence, sexual violence, healthy relationships, human trafficking, bullying, internet safety, personal body safety, elder abuse, stalking and many other issues surrounding violence.
Each year, Domestic Abuse/Sexual Assault Services provides essential services to some of our communitys most vulnerable individuals and families of all ages. Last year services were provided to 435 victims of violence and over 700 crisis line calls were received.
Your support will assist Domestic Abuse/Sexual Assault Services in providing vital services to victims and their families affected by violence throughout southwest Nebraska. Each family served has their own individual needs. Some families flee with just the clothes on their backs and are in need of many things. Some just need a safe place to stay while they have time to sort things through and make life changing decisions. Many need help in securing a safe, violent-free home through assistance with security deposits, first month’s rent, utility deposits, etc.
Our goal for Give Big McCook is $14,000.
