Domestic Violence Shelter
The YWCA opened Evansvilles first Domestic Violence Shelter in 1979. We never turn away a victim of domestic violence and her children. We believe that given a supportive environment free from abuse, victims of domestic violence are capable of developing their own strengths and abilities to manage their lives and the lives of their children. We maintain a crisis line and provide safe housing, transportation, clothing, and personal care items. Our 24-hour staff provides crisis counseling, information and referrals, goal planning, and self-sufficiency counseling. A Legal Advocate provides assistance with legal issues and counseling to both on- and off-site victims. Each child is assessed by the Childrens Advocate who provides counseling, and referrals. Other services include support groups, tutoring, parenting programs, and summer day camp.
