What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Domestic Violence

"Crime Victim Services Center" refers to the aggregate of three primary departments of services to victims of assault and violent crimes provided by the C.A.R.E. agency: Domestic Violence; Rape/Sexual Assault; and Other Violent Crimes. It should be noted that some services are funder-specific ...i.e. the Florida Council Against Sexual Assault only funds sexual assault services. Nevertheless, many agency functions are necessarily overlapping.  The Domestic Violence department provides services for victims of domestic violence. Services include but are not limited to Emergency Shelter, 24-Hour Crisis Hotline, Support Groups, Relocation Services, Crisis Counseling for adults and children, Community Outreach services in Englewood, Legal Advocacy at the Justice Center Office of the State Attorney, Victim Advocacy within the Charlotte County Sheriff's Office, Punta Gorda Police Department, pro-bono Civil Legal Services, and community awareness and prevention programming. Economic Justice programs provide survivors with learning opportunities related to personal finance and building savings, nutrition and cooking classes, and personal development for resumes and job seeking skills.
 
 

Population(s) Served

The Sexual Assault department facilitates safety and provides services for victims of rape, sexual assault and sexual abuse. In addition to the services listed above, round-the-clock response is provided to area hospitals. A helpline number dedicated for victims and survivors of rape and sexual violence has been added to the call center at C.A.R.E. The Sexual Assault department provides outreach and education programs, and has implemented a weekly support group for sexual violence survivors in order to aid recovery and provide resources for their specific needs. Secondary victims of sexual assault and rape may also attend the support group meetings.

Population(s) Served

The "Other" Violent Crime department facilitates Crime Victim Compensation for expenses like funerals, medical bills, and loss of wages. Advocates provide victims of DUI, robbery, battery, and/or homicide, or their survivors, with ongoing legal advocacy through the justice process.
