DOMESTIC VIOLENCE PROGRAM: SHELTER PROJECT - The Fort Bend County Women's Center Shelter provides a 24-Hour Crisis Hotline and emergency shelter to women and children who are victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. Families are provided with shelter, food, clothing, emergency and basic medical services at our on-site clinic or by referral, weekly case management, a wellness room, a Learning Resource Center, an employment specialist, and a housing specialist. In addition, individual, family and group counseling is provided to facilitate the healing and growth into independent living. Childcare with structured play activities is provided for Shelter children so clients can meet appointments such as medical, legal and job interviews. Transportation services and teen services are also available. AFTERCARE CENTER PROJECT: The Aftercare project is designed to support the efforts of abused women and their children who attempt to establish households independent of their battering partners, either without entering the Shelter at all or after they leave the Shelter. Services include counseling and advocacy for women and children, rental and other financial assistance, case management, counseling, employment counseling, information and referral, and transportation services. SEXUAL ASSAULT PROGRAM: The Sexual Assault Program offers rape crisis services, hospital accompaniment, court accompaniment, advocacy, counseling services (both group and individual), and case management services as needed. The program works in collaboration with the Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner program to provide survivors and their families with support, information, and referrals connected with the trauma, and forensic evidence collection examinations.
