Long-time Domestic Violence Agencies Partner to Enhance Access to Services (Homewood, IL) Anew: Building Beyond Violence and Abuse has partnered with Crisis Center of South Suburbia to share 24-hour hotline services for families experiencing domestic violence. This move streamlines access to both short and longer-term emergency shelter options for individuals seeking safety from abuse. By enhancing their partnership, the two organizations continue to ensure survivors will receive access to other important resources, such as safety planning, crisis management and counseling services 24-hours a day.

Long-time partners in addressing domestic violence in the Southland, the two agencies took their first step toward combining forces in 2019 on a collaborative project to provide Rapid Rehousing to survivors of domestic violence. Rapid Rehousing provides short-term rental assistance and case management to help survivors obtain housing quickly, increase self- sufficiency, and ultimately become permanently housed. This addition of shared hotline services strengthens each agency’s commitment to demonstrating client-centered programs.

“Our leadership teams are constantly exploring how we can use our combined expertise and resources to better serve families impacted by domestic violence in the region. We are thrilled to come together in this way and are confident survivors will benefit from this increased access.” – Jennifer Gabrenya and Pam Kostecki Anew: Building Beyond Violence and Abuse’s mission is to provide comprehensive, coordinated services to families in which domestic violence exists without imposing any one solution. Our agency promotes people and communities beginning anew with a deeper perspective of domestic violence and a rejuvenated focus on teaching peace and compassion.
