Holly’s House mission is “to empower victims of intimate crime and abuse by providing support, promoting justice and preventing violence.”
Holly’s House offers a safe and welcoming facility for victims to report the crime and begin their healing journey. Support services strive to ensure survivors of intimate crimes receive compassionate and high- quality services as they heal, both physically and emotionally.
The agency promotes justice through a multi-disciplinary service model utilized for interviewing victims of intimate crime. These services offer survivors a comforting and confidential environment to meet with investigators and complete a formal report of the crime. The interview is recorded to ensure the investigative team has an accurate account of the victim’s statement. Services are structured to minimize secondary emotional trauma for the victim as they recount the details of the incident(s).
Finally, Holly's House is dedicated to preventing violence through our community-based education and awareness activities. In 2010, the "Think First & Stay Safe" child abuse prevention program was implemented in response to data indicating the majority of children served by the agency were between 6 and 12 years old. Over the past 8 years, the program has been taught to over 40,000 elementary students in five Southwest Indiana counties.
