Domestic Violence: Opportunity Services

We also offer a 24/7 crisis line for victims of sexual assault or domestic violence.

Children’s Services
Services for children staying in the shelter are also part of Opportunity Services. Our Child Specialist develops programs and activities designed to increase parenting knowledge, decrease risk for child abuse or neglect, increase emotional management for children, and normalize family relationships after trauma.

YWCA Northeast Indiana’s Success Services program addresses the need for a continuum of care for people experiencing domestic violence. YWCA’s advocacy services strive to reduce re-victimization, increase self-sustainability, and facilitate healing in people experiencing domestic violence. Success Services encompasses the support system provided to clients dealing with domestic violence. Each client is assigned an Advocate and will work with their Advocate for the duration of their connection to YWCA NEIN. Advocates will walk with their client from crisis to self-sufficiency, connecting clients with community resources and supporting them in their journey.

YWCA’s Community Education program provides education about healthy relationships, diversity, and domestic violence to adult professionals and youth in local schools. Each year, YWCA Community Educators reach thousands of students and hundreds of adults across northeast Indiana through classroom and virtual presentations. YWCA’s prevention education strives to break the cycle of domestic violence and spread awareness about domestic violence and sexual assault. YWCA provides education on sexual assault and domestic violence in an effort to support individuals, families, and communities in reducing trauma and creating a healthy environment where families and individuals are empowered to make positive choices. Emotionally and socially healthy individuals are necessary for a productive community where people not only live, but thrive.

Advocacy services for survivors of sexual assault are also part of the Success Services program at YWCA NEIN. While sexual violence and domestic violence often overlap, the needs of people who have experienced sexual assault outside of a domestic violence relationship are distinct from those who have experienced co-occurrin domestic violence and sexual violence. To provide the best possible support for these survivors, YWCA added two staff members in 2021 dedicated to serving the specific needs of survivors of sexual assault. Anyone in the community who has survived sexual assault, no matter how long ago the assault was, can receive advocacy services. Advocates will walk with clients through processing trauma to healing and self-sufficiency, working through triggers and barriers resulting from past or recent sexual assault. Staff part of YWCA’s sexual assault services will coordinate with the local SART and the Sexual Assault Treatment Center in Fort Wayne for referrals and to ensure c
