RCVA announces website launch

The Rush County Victim Assistance announces the launching of their new website at The community is encouraged to visit their site and learn more about how RCVA serves the community and families.

Rush County Victims Assistance works to offer a safe shelter and support services to victims of domestic violence and abuse and to educate the Rush County community regarding domestic violence and its prevention.

To support the Phoenix House, staff and other volunteers in enabling the victims of domestic violence to get free and stay free. This is done by listening, empathizing, educating and providing numerous resources to victims and their families while giving them a safe place from which to start their journey. Your support helps clients to stand up straight and with conviction break the chains that hold them. Your tremendous patiece and encouragement will assist them in taking the steps they must take to achieve freedom.

Affirming that no one deserves to be abused--physically, sexually, verbally or psychologically--RCVA works toward its mission of services to victims of domestic abuse through counseling, legal and social service referrals, court support, education, and operation of an emergency shelter, the Phoenix House. We do not discriminate on the basis of age, sex, creed, race, color, ethnicity, national origin, marital status, affection preference, or different abilities.

Realizing that domestic abuse is cyclic, we seek to help our clients break free and achieve self-sufficiency. Since such patterns of abuse affect other family members besides the primary victims, we extend assistance to other family members.

Education and outreach efforts include participation in community events, distribution of literature, and publication of a newsletter and presentation of programs for community and sevice organizations.

RCVA works with law enforcement, the courts, social service agencies, schools and community organizations. Services are provided by both paid professionals and trained volunteers. Committed community members help to maintain Phoenix House and support day-to-day operations. They are committed to excellence in our services to clients and the community at large.

Find out how you can become a volunteer and get involved.
