For over 30 years, Center for Women in Transition has been providing assistance and opening doors for women and children as they deal with the significant challenges resulting from domestic violence, sexual assault, and other life-changing situations.
24-Hour Crisis Line
Because domestic violence can happen at any time, our 24-hour crisis line is staffed by trained individuals who are ready to respond to domestic violence and sexual assault victims, day or night. Through assessment, crisis intervention, and referrals to community resources, individuals can receive support and information at the moment they need it.
Families escaping violent home situations need somewhere to turn, a safe haven that stands ready at all times. Our wheelchair-accessible emergency shelter provides the security and stability of a safe, caring and confidential environment in a comfortable home setting. The shelter is staffed 24-hours a day every day of the year by trained shelter staff. Additional assistance is provided through the generous support of volunteers and interns.
Legal advocacy is designed to assist survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and/or stalking as they go through the legal system. Legal Advocates can assist survivors in filing Personal Protection Orders (PPOs), provide courtroom support, and/or general information regarding the legal system and their rights as a survivor.
Center for Women in Transition maintains close partnerships with local court offices, attorneys, and other agencies to educate individuals about their choices and help them seek assistance through the legal system.
Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) Program
Through our Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) program, 24-hour crisis intervention is offered to victims of a recent sexual assault who are age 13 and over. Through a multidisciplinary approach, the SANE program addresses the medical and emotional needs of assault victims who have experienced sexual assault within the last 96 hours. Trained registered nurses administer timely, sensitive, and comprehensive medical examinations, while specially trained sexual assault advocates are available for emotional support. A sexual assault legal advocate is also available to provide follow up legal advocacy and information that will allow survivors to make an informed decision about engaging in the legal process.
