Transitions

Transitions, formerly Susquehanna Valley Women in Transition, is a crisis center that provides advocacy, empowerment and education to victims, survivors, families and communities to end patterns of violence and abuse. Transitions operates two shelters for victims of domestic violence, one in Union County and one in Northumberland County.

24 Hour Hotline: Trained counselors are available to provide support, counseling, information and referrals to victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and other serious crimes day or night, every day of the year.
 
Emergency Shelter: Transitions offers confidential and supportive emergency shelter for families who have been displaced as a result of domestic violence or sexual assault. This includes survivors of domestic violence who have voluntarily left home with their children to avoid further violence. We offer shelter to both male and female victims of domestic violence.
 
Legal Advocacy: Trained counselors explain the legal process and proceedings, help complete and file Protection From Abuse Orders (PFA), and accompany crime victims to court hearings.
 
 
SERVICES
Medical Advocacy: Trained counselors are available to provide information and support at area hospitals and doctor's offices for victims of sexual assault, domestic violence, and other serious crimes.
 
Adult Counseling: Trained counselors provide supportive listening and short-term counseling to help explore and consider options. They also provide information and referrals to other agencies where more help is available.
 
Child Counseling:  Counseling is available for victims under 18 whose lives have been affected by sexual assault and/or violence in the home. There are support groups, play groups and special activities for younger children. Child care is provided while parents are learning to help themselves.
 
Sexual Assault Services:  Trained counselors offer support to those who have been raped or who are survivors of incest or childhood sexual assault.
 
Support Groups: People who have experienced similar life situations meet in small, confidential groups to help one another cope and offer support. Groups are led by trained counselors.
 
Education and Community Outreach: Our education staff presents awareness and prevention programs to students in public and private schools throughout the tri-county area comprising our service area, as well as to community groups and governmental agencies.
