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. 

Calling All Sponsors!

It's that time again! We're looking for Angel Tree sponsors! 

Each year, CAP has held an Angel Tree for our clients. During the holiday season, some clients can feel shame, disappointment, and hopelessness associated with being unable to provide their children with their holiday wishes. So we stepped in, along with the community to help ease this strain.
We are asking for community members to become sponsors for our clients during the holiday season. As a sponsor you can choose to sponsor a child, adult or even provide gift cards. Gifts should be brought to CAP by December 9th so we can give them to our clients by Christmas. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, please sign up here today!
