Our dedicated staff provide:

Case Management

Our program will provide intensive individual, group, and if appropriate family-focused case management services to our clients to help them get back on their feet. This includes safety planning with the client to address any safety concerns, service planning to develop a plan and set up individualized goals and follow up to resources and referrals as needed to help them achieve those goals.

Temporary Housing/Shelter Referrals

Our trained staff will connect clients to a domestic violence shelter and in emergency situations find temporary housing to help survivors of domestic violence, as well as their children, with a safe, secure space to help them break away and find stability, to begin to transform their lives.

Individual and Family Therapy

We understand that at times our clients may need additional support. We also have a licensed therapist on staff to assist clients with exceptional needs on an individual basis.

Ongoing Counseling and Support Services

Our qualified and trained Domestic Violence Counselors will provide the on-going weekly one to one counseling, support, and advocacy that victims and survivors of domestic violence need. Our clients will be able to talk directly with a qualified staff member who is ready to listen and help.

Weekly Domestic Violence & Education Groups

We offer a comprehensive 12-week domestic violence education/support group. Our curriculum covers topics such as what domestic violence is and how to recognize the warning signs of an abusive or unhealthy relationship and how domestic violence impacts children and teens.

We also have two drop-in locations in Lancaster and North Hollywood.
