About:

Mission is twofold:

  • To support and empower those affected by domesticviolence and sexual assault;
  • To develop a community where there is no acceptance ofor tolerance for either.

Philosophy:

  • The Domestic Abuse & Sexual Assault Crisis Center provides services to all who identify themselves as victims of domestic violence and/or sexual assault regardless of race, color, national origin, gender, sexual preference, religion, age, or disabilities.
  • Victims and their significant others are entitled to safety, confidentiality and reasonable access to our services. We understand that our clients know what is best for themselves and can make their own decisions. This agency will empower and encourage clients to lead their own autonomous lives. We do not victim-blame.
  • We provide temporary safe shelter for those affected by domestic violence and sexual assault. We provide the highest level of service to meet client needs. We encourage and rely on our partnership with clients to give us direction for the provision of services. We will make appropriate referrals when services needed are beyond the scope of the agency.
  • Regardless of individual professional certification, all staff and volunteers must follow the ethical guidelines of the Board of Social Workers, and those set forth by funders, as appropriate.
  • To carry out our mission, financial support will be sought from federal, state, and local governments; community and corporate entities; private individuals; and fundraising activities.
