Building a Stronger Community One Individual and Family at a Time.
Incidents of domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse, and substance abuse go up during hard economic times, like we have experienced in 2020 as we have all suffered through the COVID-19 pandemic. Job losses, foreclosures, health issues and fear for the future put tremendous stress on families.
Unfortunately, those stresses are often taken out on members of our family, significant others, and loved ones.
● 1 in 4 women and nearly 1 in 10 men experience intimate partner violence (IPV) sexual violence, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner.
● At least 1 in 7 children have experienced child abuse and/or neglect in the past year
● That drug overdoses increased 18%, and alcohol sales have increased by more than 25% in the past year.
The team at Family Support Services of West Central Indiana believes that it is the responsibility of all of us to participate in eliminating intimate partner violence, child abuse, and addiction in our communities. Everyday our team of frontline, direct support staff work and volunteers work with victims and families in Putnam, Owen, Clay, Parke, Montgomery, and Boone Counties providing support, guidance, and intervention.
We provide a wide array of services for families and victims, including healthy families programs, support groups, counseling services, and assistance with the legal system, sexual assault and child abuse while also promotiong recovery resources for individuals and families battling addictions.
