Family Violence Shelter
Autonomous Services are provided to victims and survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault, where they can choose which services best suit their needs. Advocates are available to help with information, access to the courts, personal advocacy, information/referral services, criminal justice advocacy, medical advocacy, and an explanation of potential options. Advocates also help clients feel welcome and assistance in dealing with social services, medical issues, and housing concerns. Clients make their own decisions regarding their present and future situation and that of their children.
The Women’s and Family Shelter is a member of the South Dakota Network Against Family Violence and Sexual Assault, and other organizations that support domestic violence education and prevention initiatives and lobby for social change.
