CSADV’s rural outreach program is designed to address the unique barriers that battered women, sexual assault victims, and child victims living in rural communities face.
CSADV’s rural outreach program brings supportive services to domestic violence, sexual assault victims, and their children in the counties served by CSADV. CSADV has satellite offices in Plymouth and Monona counties, with the main office being in Sioux City. Staff are available to respond to crisis and provide services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week throughout CSADV’s entire service area. With the exception of shelter, which is located in Sioux City, all services provided from the main office are also provided from the satellite offices. These services include all types of advocacy, individual counseling, and a 24-hour crisis line. Because of our community outreach program, victims are able to receive free, confidential services within their own community.
Our community outreach program also strives to create awareness and educate the community concerning the issues of domestic violence, sexual assault, and child victimization. To accomplish this, we offer education to different groups within the community and we have implemented a comprehensive informational campaign concerning the issues of domestic violence, sexual assault, and child victimization.
CSADV provides outreach services to various ethnic communities, including:
• Latina American
• African American
• Native American
CSADV’s multicultural outreach programs are designed to provide culturally sensitive information and support to victims in
their first language.
