About Us

We work each day to educate our community on the ways that interpersonal violence impacts us all.

Battered Persons’ Advocacy is a private non-profit agency focused on creating a community free of family violence, sexual assault and stalking through empowerment, support and education.  Serving our community since 1978.


We achieve this in many ways by providing:

  • 24-hour crisis line and on-site support for victims in need
  • Sexual assault and domestic violence peer-to-peer counseling services
  • Community education and training
  • Legal advocacy
  • Emergency shelter and transitional housing
  • Referral and support services

Everyone deserves peace at home.
