What We Do

Catholic Charities Domestic Violence & Sexual Assault Program provides immediate help to victims of sexual assault or domestic violence 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.

Interesting Info

Over 1500 individuals have used our services in the past year.
One in four girls and one in six boys will be sexually abused before they turn 18 years old.
Our goal is to inform the community about our Domestic Violence Response Team so every one can help prevent abuse.
