Victims of domestic violence need critical, life-saving, and supportive services

House of Ann’s main mission is to provide therapeutic services to women and their children who are victims of domestic violence.

HOA’s focus is to provide specialized counseling that help empower women to restore their confidence while allowing them to take control of their lives in a safe manner.

The solution for women who are victims of domestic violence is to not be one.

Help victims of domestic violence take control of their lives.

Creating a path towards safety and well-being

House of Ann is working to develop a program for victims of domestic violence that provides them with the therapeutic services and community support they need to regain control over their lives. HOA’s program will help women renew their minds, bodies, and broken spirits by giving them the tools they need to secure housing, employment, financial assistance, and other necessary resources.

HOA also wants to break the cycle of violence by developing a special program for children who have experienced domestic violence. HOA’s counselors will teach these children alternatives to violence and guide them to a fulfilling healthy life.

How the program will work

Individual therapy

A licensed clinical psychologist will provide individual therapy to help victims cope with the devastating effects of abuse. They will assist the victim in working through self-blame, depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder.

Professional services

House of Ann staff professionals will work closely with victims to devise a plan they can utilize in their transition to a safer life. HOA will have direct access to multiple community and legal resources that can help victims with safe-housing, address confidentiality, child support, restraining orders, medical services, and legal assistance. There will also be career development opportunities to help women secure employment, job skill training, or further their education.

Program for children

A program devoted to children victimized by domestic will also be established through House of Ann. HOA will link every child with family therapeutic services, private counseling, and psychological testing. These trained professionals will help children understand their feelings and learn alternatives to violence. Our focus is to minimize the emotional and behavioral damages domestic violence can cause in children.

The conception of House of Ann was motivated
by a co-worker’s tragic story

No one in the office ever suspected that the sweet and beautiful co-worker, who frequently shared wonderful stories about her daughter and twin boys, would be a victim of spousal abuse. She was always on time, quietly did her work, and spoke softly.

The employees in the office didn’t notice the subtle signs of her abuse. She would politely ask the male supervisor not to touch her when he tapped her on her shoulder to ask a question. At times, the co-worker’s husband would even sit in the waiting area for long periods of time and glare through the window to watch her work. No one knew the pain she experienced at home.

One evening, the co-worker’s husband became very violent after wrongfully accusing her of having an affair— he believed their intimacy level was different. Fearing for her life, she knew she had to leave that night. When he stormed out of the house, she quickly packed a few things and fled the state. She believed her children would be safe as she knew how much her husband loved them too.

The next day on the morning news, it was reported that the three children were shot to death in their beds and the father killed himself. The co-worker was contacted by her mother who told her the horrible news. She was devastated to learn that he killed the people whom she loved the most.

No one can predict what horrible things an abuser may be capable of doing.
