Between Friends is dedicated to breaking the cycle of domestic violence and building a community free of abuse by offering resources and prevention-based education to individuals and the community. We serve individuals impacted by domestic violence through the following programs: - Counseling and Support Services Program provides individual, group, and family counseling for adults, children, and teens, a financial literacy program, art therapy, and direct assistance. - Court Advocacy Program offers court assistance to victims of domestic violence who seek Orders of Protection at the Rolling Meadows and downtown Chicago Courthouses. This program also connects survivors with pro-bono attorneys through our free legal clinics in Chicago and Rolling Meadows. - Crisis Line created in 1991 as Illinois’ first statewide hotline, the crisis line continues to be a life-sustaining resource for domestic violence victims 24 hours a day, seven days a week. - Relationship Education: A Choice for Hope (REACH) Program: educates Chicago-area middle and high school students, and their adult allies about healthy dating relationships and the warning signs of abuse. - Healthcare and Community Education provides individualized presentations and trainings to a diverse array of community members to raise awareness and build a broader constituency who support breaking the cycle of domestic violence.
