360 Communities Violence Prevention & Intervention

Since the first 360 Communities Lewis House shelter opened its doors in 1979, more than 86,000 survivors of sexual and domestic violence have benefited from its safety, support and advocacy services, with help currently being provided to about 3,000 women and children annually.

Trained advocates offer emotional support, referrals to community resources and help navigating the court system. 360 Communities Sexual Assault Services offers a 24/7 telephone hotline and trained advocates to help sexual assault survivors cope with the aftermath of the physical and emotional trauma they have experienced.Learn More
Lewis House advocates partner with schools, faith communities, service organizations and businesses to raise awareness about teen dating violence, bullying, date/acquaintance rape, sexual assault and harassment and the effects and prevalence of domestic violence. Advocates also teach younger students about peacemaking and conflict resolution, developing skills that stop violence before it starts, teaching boys to value and respect women and girls.Learn More
360 Communities trains advocates to help sexual assault survivors regain their sense of safety and cope with the physical and emotional trauma they have experienced. Advocates answer questions and provide support as survivors navigate the legal system and medical examinations.
