Counselors provide tools to empower survivors to increase their safety and lead lives free from violence. Support groups provide a safe place to learn & grow with others who have gone through similar situations.
We provide information about the criminal justice system, provide court support, assist with filing personal protection orders & work with local police jurisdictions who receive domestic violence & sexual assault complaints. Our advocates are also embedded in the Flint Police Department, as well as circuit and district court, working alongside our partners to provide services to victims.
Since 1980, our 32 bed facility has provided safe, emergency shelter for victims and children who are homeless as a result of abusive situations. Residents receive support services such as counseling and advocacy, as well as assistance with finding permanent housing.
In 2017, we began offering free rape examinations on site with 24-hour access to specially trained Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners (SANE).
