Harbor House Domestic Abuse Programs
At Harbor House, we realize that domestic abuse is a complex, multifaceted problem. In addition to offering programs and services that directly assist victims and survivors of domestic abuse, we work to build our community’s capacity to respond to abuse. By taking a 360 degree approach that tackles the issue of domestic abuse from multiple disciplines and perspectives, we hope to eradicate domestic abuse from our communities.
Available to adult survivor-victims (past or present) of domestic abuse, the Harbor House Adult Program helps clients plan for their safety and cope with the trauma they’ve experienced as a result of domestic abuse. Advocates teach clients how to recognize the types of abuse affecting their lives and direct them to a variety of services.
Children and Youth Program
Our Children and Youth Program helps children and teens heal the emotional wounds that come from witnessing or experiencing domestic abuse. Youth programming focuses on restoring the relationship between children and their protective parents. Young people are supported through counseling, educational and legal advocacy, support group, and other fun activities.
Community Outreach & Prevention Education
Our Community Outreach Program helps educate community members about the various types of domestic abuse, the traumatic effects of abuse, and ways to help someone in an abusive relationship. We also provide Prevention Education in local schools to help students identify healthy relationships and show them how to find help for themselves and others.
Shelter & Crisis Program
The Shelter Program provides safe, temporary shelter to individuals and families experiencing domestic abuse. Shelter residents receive counseling and support services in a safe, secure, and inclusive environment. People experiencing domestic abuse can use access services 24/7 by calling our crisis line at (920) 832-1667.
Calumet County Rural Outreach Program
Located in Chilton, our Calumet County Outreach Office provides programming similar to what’s offered at our main location in Appleton. Special attention is given to the unique circumstances faced by domestic abuse victims and survivors living in rural communities.
