We help vulnerable Kentuckians maintain their safety and promote good health.
We help people free themselves from violence and live happy independent lives. We represent victims of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking in civil protective order procedures. In Kentucky, victims can represent themselves but much is at stake. We can help those who have experienced violence achieve maximum benefit under the law. This includes supervised visitation to reduce the abuser's ability to control the victim through the children, custody, child support, and possession of the home, among other things.
In January 2016, Kentucky’s legislature enacted a new law extending civil protection to victims of dating violence, sexual assault and stalking. We work with our local communities to ensure that people know about these laws and can access our services. We work with other service providers to make sure people have holistic support. Read the Kentucky Revised Statute.
In addition to our regular 33 county service area, we provide service to victims in protective order cases in Clark, Estill, Garrard, Lawrence, Lincoln, Madison and Powell counties.
Through our SHIP program, we help people 60 years old or older on Medicare make good health benefits decisions. Learn about SHIP services.
