CCWCC is the sole provider of emergency shelter services and additional linked services for victims of domestic violence and/or sexual assault in Iron, Beaver, and Garfield counties.  CCWCC is funded by state and federal grants, foundations, and generous donations from caring individuals and groups within our community. Thank you for your support! 

Emergency Shelter

Secured with alarm systems, cameras, and well trained staff, the CCWCC emergency shelter is accessible 24 hours a days for women and children who need a safe haven from a domestic violence or rape/sexual assault situation. We provide help and support, based on an individual case basis. CCWCC staff members are there at all times to provide food, clothing, emotional support, crisis intervention, and advocacy. Men who need a safe place to stay can call our 24 hour crisis hotline for assistance. If you or anyone you know might be in danger, please call one of our 24 hour crisis hotlines.

The Mobile Crisis Response Team

CCWCC started offering this service in August 2012. The team is coordinated by Sheena Clark and consists of several members including CCWCC staff and volunteers. Services provided include: 24-hour crisis hotline; on-scene crisis intervention and follow-up support; hospital response advocacy; assistance, support, and court advocacy with: Protective Orders, Child Protective Orders, and Stalking Injunctions; and referrals to appropriate community agencies. This program provides mobile advocacy and support for ALL victims of crime in Iron County.

Support Groups

CCWCC offers weekly support groups for women and children (ages 5+) who are survivors of domestic violence. These are on-going, open psycho-educational support groups that provide information and tools to assist in overcoming the effects of domestic violence, in a safe and confidential space where voices and stories can be heard. Please call us if you would like more information about this program, including the day, time, and location where the support groups are help.

Transitional Housing Program

CCWCC started this program in June 2012. This program allows us to help families transition from our shelter to their own home, and provide financial assistance for up to 18 months, along with other supportive services to help them in healing from the effects of domestic violence and reach their ultimate goal of self-sufficiency and violence-free lives. CCWCC currently has five families in this program, and hopes to find other sources of funding, including donations from the local community, so we can serve more families in need.

Community Education Program

 CCWCC wants to help create a community where domestic violence, rape and sexual assault, and dating violence are intolerable, and families can feel safe together in healthy relationships. We provide awareness and educational presentations and would be happy to come speak to your group about a variety of topics, specific to your needs! Let us know if you are interested in having a CCWCC staff member speak to your group.

Volunteer Program

CCWCC needs dedicated, caring individuals willing to volunteer their time and help us in our mission. We provide volunteer training sessions three times a year (fall, winter, and summer), and work with each volunteer to identify and match their strengths and interests with our needs.
