Get To Know Us
Your support offers a unique solution to address domestic abuse in central Indiana. The Coburn Place program is the largest and most comprehensive transitional housing program (6 months to 2 years) in Indianapolis, Indiana. We utilize a compassionate model of voluntary (trauma informed) services. This model is rooted in a deep understanding of the emotional and psychological needs that victims face as they leave their abuser. It is the only program that offers on-site, individual apartments with private kitchens and bathrooms.
Watch this video to see how your support is empowering domestic violence survivors and their children. We are so grateful to Creative Street Media Group, which donated their services to tell our story.
Your support allows a resident may remain at Coburn Place for up to two years. Time, housing, counseling and support provide stability to help survivors become self-sufficient and to break the cycle of violence. A full children’s program helps the children begin to heal from family violence, too. We recognize that a holistic, professional, and compassionate program is essential for survivors of domestic violence.
Domestic violence is a pattern of behavior used by one partner in an intimate relationship to gain or maintain power and control over the other. Abuse can take many forms – physical, sexual, emotional, economic or psychological. This includes any actions, behaviors or threats that frighten, intimidate, terrorize, manipulate, hurt, humiliate, blame, injure or wound someone. The abuser retains power over the victim.
Coburn Place empowers victims of intimate partner abuse to live as survivors. That’s our mission statement. We work with victims to restore their sense of power and control over their own lives. In this era of hashtags, we like to think of this as the ultimate #PowerShift.
It’s your support that makes this shift happen. Want to know how? Read stories of real-life survivors and the difference you made for them. Check back often or subscribe. You’re changing lives all the time.
