We're here for you.

Intimate partner violence occurs when one person in a relationship uses power to gain control over another. The abuse can be physical, sexual, emotional, financial or spiritual. Abusers gain control in many ways – through intimidation, coercion, threats and isolation. They may use children as a manipulation tool or engage in economic or emotional abuse. They may blame their partner and minimize or deny their concerns.

We believe everyone deserves a safe home. We can help you begin to heal and work with you to plan a strong, independent life free from abuse.

"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.”
Juana, Coburn Place Graduate
"Coburn Place showed me more love than any other. The last time I felt this love is with my parents. From a 1 to 10 – with 10 being the best – I give Coburn an overall 10+! It's just pure love, compassion, kindness, caring, help. These people here are exceptional!"
