Crisis Connection Inc., would like to thank the United Way of Perry County for its financial support of our organization. We would also like to thank everyone who contributed to the United Way of Perry County as you helped make this allocation to us possible.
Crisis Connection is a local agency that offers a variety of services to families affected by domestic or sexual violence. We serve Perry, Spencer, Dubois, Orange, Crawford, Martin, Daviess, and Pike counties.
The services we offer to victims and survivors of domestic or sexual violence include a 24-hour hotline, crisis intervention, counseling, referral services, safe homes, help with protective orders and emergency transportation to safe locations.
We also provide advocacy services for victims-survivors with law enforcement officials, prosecutors, lawyers, emergency-room personnel, medical and mental-health professionals, clergy, landlords and employers.
These services are all free to our clients.
Crisis Connection offers primary prevention programs about domestic and sexual violence to young people through the school systems, churches and organizations.
Presentations include such topics as bullying, dating violence, healthy relationships, technology safety, and substance abuse, among others. Our goal with primary prevention education is to promote healthy relationships in all aspects.
Our vision is to create a community free of interpersonal violence. Crisis Connection maintains a website with a variety of educational information, research and reference material.
The website allows our educational materials to be available to the general public. Our website is www.crisisconnectioninc.org.
The United Way allocation is important to us for another reason. This money provides a local match for state grants that Crisis Connection receives from Indiana Criminal Justice Institute and other state and local funding sources.
During the 2012-2013 school year, Crisis Connection provided 90 presentations reaching 5,368 people in Perry County.
During 2012, Crisis Connection worked with 166 domestic-violence clients, and 39 sexual-violence clients in Perry County. We answered 162 domestic-sexual violence hotline calls and provided 50 face-to-face sessions with clients in Perry County.
Crisis Connection depends on local support to continue to serve our communities. The United Way of Perry County is vitally important to us.
We wish to once again thank everyone who has contributed to the United Way and made their support of us possible.
