Investments provide domestic violence counseling, education and support for victims and their families.
While each of the WCA's direct service programs provide crucial support to families already impacted by domestic violence and sexual assault, the only way to reduce the occurrence of intimate partner violence within the Omaha metropolitan area is through a prevention strategy. The WCA offers a Prevention and Education Program for this reason. The end goal of the program is to change social norms related to appropriate relationship dynamics and to create a society-wide intolerance for victimization.
The WCA’s Safety Services Program encompasses four interwoven service areas as part of the agency’s continuum of care. Programs under the Safety Services umbrella include: Advocacy, Crisis Counseling, Legal Services, and Immigration. Safety Services address physical security, emotional trauma, and legal matters that affect both the physical and emotional safety of victims of domestic violence and sexual assault (DVSA).
