Description

The Basta! (Enough!) Domestic Violence Program provides a wide range of counseling and supportive services for survivors of domestic violence. The top priority of the program is to keep victims and their vulnerable family members safe. Therefore, on an individual and group basis, staff helps participants in the areas of:

  • Crisis intervention
  • Safety planning
  • Court and legal advocacy
  • Gaining access to services

HAS works closely with community partners to link participants with needed resources including children’s services, healthcare, legal assistance, emergency food, and shelter.

The program operates under a trauma-informed, strength-based model that emphasizes empowerment and independent decision making. Participants are given information, encouragement, and support in order to rebuild their lives and achieve safety, self-sufficiency, and peace for themselves and their families.

Services are offered in both English and Spanish and are provided in a caring, supportive, culturally competent environment. The program is completely confidential.
