Portrait of survivor

We empower survivors of interpersonal abuse. We believe in starting with safe housing and letting them lead the way. We offer supportive services and lift survivors – and their children – up so they can soar. We serve everyone – cisgender, transgender and nonbinary survivors. We have transitional housing at our flagship building in Midtown Indianapolis, as well as in our community-based housing program. Our services are available to all our clients, including those on our waiting list and program graduates. Breaking the cycle of abuse creates stronger people, stronger families and – ultimately – stronger communities.

“Coburn Place is transitional housing, and it's exactly what I did. I transitioned into a stronger and better woman for myself and my kids.”
