Need Help? We Are Here For You!
Community Works is here to offer support, encouragement, and advocacy, every hour of every day. We are here for anyone who has experienced domestic or sexual violence. Community Works advocates are available by phone and in-person to provide support and advocacy. All services are free and confidential.
Community Works’ Dunn House Shelter provides a safe refuge and support to women, children, and men who need to escape from domestic or sexual abuse. Immediate needs for safety, clothing, food and transportation are provided. Dunn House offers support groups for adults and children as well as help taking the next steps for a life free from violence.
Our Transitional Living Program provides safe and stable housing for up to 24 months, while young adults continue their education, work, set, and achieve goals, save money and gain valuable life skills. This Transitional Living Program is also open to those who have children of their own. Case Managers are there to support every step of the way as residents build their own paths to success.
Community Works’ advocates are available in the community to help where and when people need it. Advocates are available at Jackson County Court, Medford Police, Central Point Police, and Jackson County Sheriff’s Departments. Advocates are available day and night to accompany survivors of sexual assault to the hospital or police station, where they can offer emotional support and information regarding medical care and the legal process.
Community Works is here to help parents. If you have child welfare involvement due to concerns of domestic violence, a Community Works advocate is available. An advocate is also located at Children’s Advocacy Center to support children and families who have experienced abuse. Support groups are also held weekly for children.
Community Works is available every hour of every day through HelpLine at (541)779-4357 (HELP).
