CADA provides emergency safety shelter to female-identifying survivors and their children who are experiencing domestic violence, sexual violence, or sex trafficking. Our shelter is a diverse environment; we welcome women and children seeking shelter regardless of ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, or English proficiency. Staying in shelter is free and CADA provides home-cooked meals, hygiene items, and other basic necessities.
CADA’s community advocates help individuals and families with a variety of services, such as safety planning, protective orders, emotional support, and more. Community advocates provide services to women, men, children, and unaccompanied youth.
Keep Me Safe Parenting Time Center
The Keep Me Safe Parenting Time Centers provide a safe and nurturing place for children to visit their non-custodial parent without the fear of witnessing or experiencing violence. We strive to provide a positive, healthy, and nurturing environment where children and their parents can be assured that the parenting time and supervised exchange will be conflict-free.
CADA’s Education Program offers educational services to organizations, schools, and service providers to spread awareness of and share information about domestic and sexual violence. Prevention efforts should start at a young age, which is why CADA partners closely with area schools.
Support groups are an important part of what we do at CADA. Advocates are often working with people who are facing immediate safety concerns, but support groups allow us to help survivors on a longer-term journey of healing. Support groups are a way for survivors to process and work through some hard emotions while also building connections and a network of supportive individuals.
Victim services at CADA are free and confidential to all.
