CSADV is beginning a capital campaign for expansion of the crucial services we provide. CSADV provides two separate and distinct programs to individuals and families affected by domestic violence; Shelter and the Comprehensive Domestic Abuse (community) program. The CSADV shelter now serves 19 counties in NW Iowa, 2 counties in Nebraska and 1 county in South Dakota at our site in Sioux City. We provided shelter to 644 children and adults in 2015. The CSADV Comprehensive Domestic Abuse services cover Woodbury and Plymouth counties and provided counseling and support to another 1,083 survivors.
Our shelter space is often over capacity and we then secure hotel rooms to provide safety to survivors of domestic violence and their children. At the same time, outreach counselors in the domestic abuse program struggle to find space to meet with survivors who come in for counseling and advocacy services. The building adjacent to our current location has become available for purchase and seems ideal for the provision of comprehensive services and administrative space.
The leadership and generosity of the Gleeson family and Klinger Companies have provided an initial $100,000, with a challenge to the community to raise the additional $100,000 by July 29, 2016 to make the purchase possible.
To support the campaign please call us at 712-277-0131 or you can make checks payable to CSADV—PO Box 1565, Sioux City, IA 51102.
