Violence Prevention & Intervention
Our first Lewis House shelter opened its doors in 1979. Since then, we have expanded our violence prevention and intervention services to include two shelters, sexual assault services, outreach advocacy, and education. We work with schools, faith communities, other service organizations, and law enforcement to equip people with the tools to combat abuse and support survivors.
At 360 Communities, we intervene in crises and provide a stabilizing force for individuals experiencing violence. Our staff support individuals sheltering at one of our Lewis Houses and non-sheltered victims. We help people navigate the justice and healthcare systems. Advocates educate community members about domestic and sexual violence at public events and in schools.
