Our Mission at Coburn Place is to empower people impacted by interpersonal abuse. Our Vision is of a world where every adult and child may live free from interpersonal abuse, housed stably and safely, with adequate financial resources.
Coburn Place is constantly evolving to be a “best in class” program and a leader in the field of domestic violence programs to support our clients in the best possible way. In 2011, we became the first residential domestic violence program in Indiana to implement a voluntary, trauma-informed model of service delivery. We recognize survivors as experts in their own lives and do not mandate programming. We also recognize that each survivor is on their own unique journey to immediate and long-term safety, to emotional and social well-being, to self-sufficiency and to permanent housing. Our programs and services are designed to empower our clients on this journey and partner with them along the way. National trends in service delivery have begun to recognize voluntary services as a best practice.
