SERVICE OVERVIEW 
Crisis Hotline

 

The Center for Abused Persons offers the only 24-hour, seven-day-a-week hotline in Charles County. Trained hotline counselors provide emotional support, problem solving and practical guidance, referrals to additional resources, and administrative support like appointment scheduling.

Counseling

 

Masters-level counselors offer affordable, trauma-informed care to adult and adolescent victims of intimate partner violence, sexual assault, and childhood abuse. Counseling services may focus on short-term stabilization or long-term emotional processing and recovery.

Victim Advocacy

 

The Victim Advocate helps clients navigate the criminal-legal system. Services include assistance with safety planning, filing protective orders, accompanying victims to court proceedings, and providing hospital and/or home visits following dangerous assaults. 

Abuse Intervention Program

 

The Abuse Intervention Program (AIP) is a state-certified, 26-week group opportunity for people who have perpetrated intimate partner violence. AIP uses a combination of education, skill building, conversation, and positive reinforcement to create lasting change. 

Community Education

 

The Center for Abused Persons will send a staff educator to talk to your business, church, or community group about topics including intimate partner violence, healthy relationships, sexual assault prevention, child abuse prevention, and crisis intervention.
