Trauma and Violence Services

Violence impacts people of all genders, sexual orientations, cultural, religious and socioeconomic backgrounds. Victims need caring and support. That's what CHA provides.

If you've experienced violence or abuse, you may feel isolated and alone, and may be reluctant to reach out to others. You may experience feelings of fear, numbness and shock, helplessness, anger, anxiety, depression and even guilt or self-blame. You may have questions about how to cope with your physical injuries, how to heal from the emotional impact of your experiences, how to file a report with the police, and what the court process would be like for you. Or you may just want someone to talk to - someone who understands.
