Get To Know Us

Coburn Place offers supportive services and housing options to survivors of intimate partner violence. We utilize a compassionate model of voluntary/trauma-informed services to focus on the overall well-being of the person while addressing barriers to safety, self-sufficiency and permanent housing. This model is rooted in a deep understanding of the emotional and psychological needs that victims face as they leave their abuser.

Whether you are looking for help or wanting to get involved in supporting our program as a volunteer or donor, you can find everything you need right here on our website. If you want to speak with someone about our services  and/or housing options, or about how you can get involved in making a difference, please call us at 317-923-5750 or email us, and someone will be happy to assist you!

Bracing for Crushing Funding Cuts

2/1/2017: Not even a year after facing a significant loss due to a change in federal HUD funding, Coburn Place Safe Haven faces another uphill battle to ensuring local survivors of intimate partner violence have safety and housing options and support services.

On January 19th, The Hill reported that the new Trump Administration budget would propose drastic spending cuts by calling to eliminate a multitude of federal initiatives including the Office of Violence Against Women (OVW).  OVW implements the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) and oversees grant programs.

To Coburn Place, the elimination of VAWA funds would translate to a loss of about $300,000 annually – about a third of its entire staff funding could be lost.  VAWA grants support, from small percentages to large portions, 18 of Coburn Place’s 26 employees.  Its program would be left gutted and struggling to provide the safety, self-sufficiency, well-being, and housing services it has provided for the last 20 years.  “Our team is our program.  They are our services and supports to the community” explains Julia Kathary, Coburn Place Executive Director.

    Coburn Place is transitional housing and its exactly what I did. I transitioned into a stronger and better woman for myself and my kids. I didn’t know I had it in me. I learned to be self sufficient, learned to know which battles to fight, how to fight them, and when to fight them.”

    “Coburn Place saved my life. When someone doesn’t have a support system and then all of a sudden a whole building of people are there for you it changes your life. Because of Coburn Place I learned what I wanted and what I didn’t want in my life and how to fight for that. Now I’m a married woman. I have a great job with Wishard, and I have been drug-free for five years. I have paid off my car this past tax season, and we are working with Rebuilding the Walls to be rebuild our credit and buy a home for our daughter –that’s our dream. Thank you Coburn Place for helping me and guiding me onto the right path.”
