Caring House depends on cash donations and community volunteer hours to provide survivor support services and comply with grant applications. Victim of Crime Act (VOCA) requires Caring House to contribute a 20% match of VOCA grants we utilize. That can come from other non-federal funding or the value of donated items and volunteered time.

CARING HOUSE CONFIDENTIAL CONTACT FORM

Speaking out takes courage and makes a real difference. Everything you mention to us is confidential, and we are here to provide a safe, non-judgmental place for you to express your concerns.
Many moms, dads, children, and senior citizens who are affected by domestic violence find it very difficult to come forward to seek help. We believe every family should be healthy, happy, and strong. It is because of people like you that others will feel empowered to end the cycle of violence.
Please call to speak with a trained counselor or fill out our confidential contact form.
