-Because domestic violence can result in psychological as well as physical injury and even death, the State of Indiana has mandated that shelter services must be provided without charge. Therefore, it is now necessary to be in the shelter to receive The Caring Place services.
-In addition to safe shelter, The Caring Place provides community education, support groups, legal counseling and case management, independent living planning.
Speaker's Bureau: Community Outreach is offered to area organizations, hospitals, and youth groups. Educational trainings and presentations on domestic violence related topics, sexual assault, teen dating violence, and bullying is offered upon request.
THE CARING PLACE is a non-profit social service organization, serving the needs of domestic violence and sexual assault victims. Our organization primarily serves victims in Lake, Porter and Starke counties in Northwest Indiana, but may include victims across the country.
