What We Do

Catholic Charities Domestic Violence & Sexual Assault Program provides immediate help to victims of sexual assault, domestic violence, and human trafficking, and their loved ones. We work in nine southwestern Iowa counties and operate a 24/7 crisis line to ensure victims have immediate access to help.
While we may start with a client in crisis – we don’t stop there. Our programs assists with basic needs of food and shelter then expands to empowerment which help secure housing, employment and more. Professional counseling services help to scale barriers. Educational programs help build client confidence and self-esteem. Our staff continues to adapt our programming to the ever changing needs of our community including the awareness and prevention of human trafficking.
