Changing Lives and Fighting to End Domestic Violence

Giving a Voice to Survivors

Our Mission

St. Jude House is committed to ending domestic violence through education and survivor empowerment. Every year, our family violence prevention center serves hundreds of adults and children, providing housing through our emergency shelter in Crown Point, Indiana, and non-residential group programming.

We welcome each and every survivor, regardless of race, religion or background, and create a safe place for survivors to heal and rebuild as they begin a new phase of their lives.

You Are Not Alone

Our Services

Our Services

Case Management
Every survivor has a different story. We work with each client to understand their story and determine their need for resources such as income, transportation, insurance, housing and medical treatment.
Legal Advocacy
You are not alone. St. Jude House helps survivors identify their legal rights and options and teaches them how to pursue those choices successfully.
Child Advocacy
Our Child Advocate supports each child through his/her traumatic experiences. The use of art expression, writing and other intentional activities provide children with opportunities to express their feelings and develop healthy coping skills.
Adult Advocacy
Breaking the cycle of domestic violence starts with taking action. St. Jude House and our advocates provide support, assistance and referrals to help adults impacted by domestic violence heal, grow and move forward.
Mobile Advocacy
Safety is our main priority at St. Jude House. Our Community Advocates will meet survivors in a public location of their choosing (park, church, coffee shop, etc.) to discuss what resources and services are available and needed. In addition, they provide emotional support to help survivors talk through their thoughts and emotions so they can make the best decisions for themselves.

Know the Signs

Education Can Save Lives

Domestic violence isn’t about love; it’s about power and control, and it affects people of all backgrounds. It can happen to anyone of any race, age, sexual orientation, religion or gender. It’s not always easy to identify abuse – either in your own relationships or those around you – but knowing the signs can save lives and help end domestic violence.
