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.

Celebrating 20 Years
In 1996, you may have been driving around in a new car that cost $16,300, singing along to Mariah Carey and Boyz to Men, on the way to the gas station to fill up for $1.15/gallon. Your favorite TV shows were probably “E.R”, “Seinfeld” and “Friends”. Hillary Clinton was living at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue as First Lady. Oprah started her famous book club. The minimum wage was raised to $5.15/hour.
And Indianapolis strengthened its efforts to end domestic violence in our community. Coburn Place opened its doors to five adults and 14 children on 12/28/1996 .
The players were many and the stakes were high. (Read a more detailed account of the history here.) Coburn Place was born, creating the first transitional housing units for domestic violence victims in central Indiana. Community advocates hailed it as the “culmination of a dream”.
Since that day in 1996, more than 1700 adults and children have called Coburn Place their home. 1700 lives have been touched by your generosity. We are so very grateful. Follow along on social media with #20YearsOfCPSH. So many thanks to the co.co studio for our 20th anniversary logo!
