Twenty-one years ago, Coburn Place was created as a result of the Safe Haven Campaign that was implemented to address the lack of housing and services in Indianapolis for victims of domestic violence. Since opening in 1996, Coburn Place has provided housing and support services to more than 735 adults and 1,183 children and outreach and advocacy services to 352 adults and 107 on the wait list. In 2016, 98% of clients who lived at Coburn Place and received supportive services were able to exit to permanent housing compared to 48% of clients who did not choose to receive services. Coburn Place has been working to ensure that the model of service delivery is a value-based, decision-making model that serves as a compass for program staff providing trauma-informed, low-barrier and voluntary services to each survivor of domestic violence with the goal of meeting survivors where they are. Coburn Place is establishing itself as a local, state and national leader in offering life-changing supports and options to survivors as they journey beyond abuse, poverty and homelessness and into stability, self-sufficiency, and well-being. Coburn Place not only offers housing and supportive services but also enhances and expands services to ensure that the needs of each individual client and the Indianapolis community are truly met based on current trends, program evaluation research, and best practice.
