Domestic Violence

Domestic Violence Program

Our Domestic Violence Program provides safe space, and survivor-centered advocacy for survivors to access the resources that they need in order to keep them and their families safe. Our holistic program implements culturally-appropriate services that meet the physical and emotional needs for survivors. In addition, our program approach is based on the strength/empowerment model of advocacy where the survivor’s expertise regarding her life is listened to and honored. These services are designed to facilitate safety and self-sufficiency through self-determination for survivors. We are here to listen and support you in any way that we can. YOU ARE NOT ALONE.

Domestic Violence Services:

  • Safety planning;
  • Crisis intervention;
  • Referrals to community resources;
  • Legal/medical/social services support advocacy;
  • Home-visiting follow-ups; and
  • Sisterhood building for Hmong women through Vivncaus Unite

Confidentially and safety is our number one priority. If you or someone you know would like more information, do not hesitate to contact at (414) 930‑9352.
