24 Jun A Letter From CODA To The Community
The Council on Domestic Abuse, Inc. would like to sincerely thank the local community for the tremendous support
shown over the last year. With generous support from Terre Haute City Redevelopment, local businesses, churches,
organizations, foundations, and individuals in the Wabash Valley, CODA services are helping more victims than ever
before. Our emergency shelter expansion opened in December 2016 with a new capacity to sleep 44 individuals per
night, instead of 24. Nearly 5,000 locals received violence prevention and awareness information either in a classroom setting or while attending community health fairs in 2017. CODA’s sexual assault victim’s advocate responded to 59 victims at the hospital and offered support during the medical examination and interview with law enforcement. The 24/7 crisis hotline received 492 calls in 2017. In the first 5 months of 2018, CODA legal advocates have already assisted 837 survivors of domestic violence or sexual assault seeking help and understanding of the criminal justice system, compared to 1,179 in all of 2017.
Your contributions are making a difference in the community we share, and I want to say thank you. Special thanks to our supporters offering significant financial contributions over the last year:
