THE NEED FOR OUR MISSION

The sad truth is, domestic violence is a big problem in Porter County and throughout the state of Indiana.

In 2015, an annual census of shelters and services conducted by the National Network to End Domestic Violence reported the following services were provided to victims in Indiana during one 24-hour period.

DURING ONE 24-HOUR PERIOD IN INDIANA

1,863 domestic violence victims (children and adults) found refuge in emergency shelters or transitional housing provided by local domestic violence programs.
1,069 individuals were educated on domestic violence during local training programs.
522 hotline calls were answered.

THE CARING PLACE IS THE ONLY 24-HOUR CRISIS LINE AND EMERGENCY SHELTER IN PORTER COUNTY.


THE SOLUTION

Build a new facility to safely and adequately serve all who need our help.

To address these challenges and allow for future growth, we propose building a new shelter on property recently purchased through the generosity of a donor.

OUR CLIENTS DESERVE AN ENVIRONMENT WHERE THEY CAN LEARN, GROW, AND THRIVE - NOT JUST SURVIVE.
