6 Program Description and Accomplishments In 2009, Women Helping Women served over 8,500 direct and indirect survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking, and provided education/prevention programs to over 4,500 individuals in Hamilton County. The US Department of Health and Human Services has identified two outcomes as empirically shown by research to lead to long-term results of increased safety and well-being for domestic violence survivors: developing a plan of action to deal with their crisis and knowledge of resources available to assist/protect them. We measure these and other outcomes as appropriate to document and track the impact of our programming. Our target for all outcome achievement is 85% of clients served. In 2009, 95% of clients served demonstrated knowledge of resources available to assist/protect them and 93% of clients served had developed a plan of action to deal with their crisis. Hotline Our hotline operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week to provide crisis intervention to sexual assault, domestic violence and stalking survivors. Hotline services include Language Line interpretation services for non-English speaking callers and TTY access for Deaf/Hard –of Hearing callers. Women Helping Women handled 5,373 hotline calls in 2009.95% of callers demonstrated knowledge of resources available and 93% developed a verbal plan of action to deal with their crisis. “Women Helping Women was helpful in every way. Thank you. “ – Client Hospital Accompaniment Women Helping Women and staff volunteers work around-the-clock to provide support to rape survivors in hospital emergency rooms. In 2009, we provided hospital accompaniment to 173 sexual assault survivors. “I’m so grateful you helped me and my husband understand what was going on.” - Client, Parent of Survivor

7 Court and Law Advocacy Women Helping Women staff and volunteers accompany sexual assault, domestic violence and stalking survivors to criminal and domestic relations court daily, providing advocacy, support and education. Women Helping Women advocates also serve these survivors during the investigation phase of cases involved with the Cincinnati Police Department. In 2009, we provided 534 court advocacy contacts and 494 law enforcement advocacy correspondence contacts. “Thank you so much for all your help. I’m excited to start my new life.” - Client Individual Crisis Intervention Staff provides help to survivors dealing with the immediate after-effects of domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking. In 2009, the agency provided 662 individual crisis intervention contacts. “Women Helping Women has been very helpful to me. Thanks a lot.” – Client Support Groups To help survivors cope with their feelings about experiencing sexual assault and/or domestic violence, Women Helping Women facilitates a number of support groups. These groups help survivors feel less isolated, enable them to share their experiences and feelings and provide them with strength and support to overcome their fears. In 2009, support group contacts totaled 1,900. Volunteers Volunteers are vital to the 24-hour operation of the agency. Following intensive training, our volunteers serve many roles including court advocates, answering the hotline, accompanying sexual assault survivors to the hospital, and help with community outreach/education. Volunteers are active as Board and committee members and provide clerical support. A group of over 100 volunteers provided more than 7,000 hours of service in 2009.

8 Community Outreach, Education and Professional Trainings Each year Women Helping Women receives many requests for community education presentations about the issues of domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking. The agency also continues to be a crucial and reliable resource for the media regarding local, state and national issues involving domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking. Ensuring that other professionals such as law enforcement officers, medical professionals, teachers and counselors, social workers know how to identify and respond appropriately improves the community’s response to survivors and increases their safety and support. A total of 38 speeches, 29 professional trainings and 17 informational table/booths reaching a total of more than 1,513 individuals were provided in 2009 to a variety of organizations including law enforcement departments, social service agencies, hospitals, clinics, drug treatment programs and church groups. Date Rape/Dating Violence Prevention Program Domestic/dating violence and sexual assault disproportionately affect youth; girls ages 16 to 19 are four more times more likely than the general population to be victims of rape, attempted rape and sexual assault ( National Crime Victims Survey, 2000), and women ages 16-24 experience the highest per capita rates of intimate partner violence (US Department of Justice, 2001). Our school-based education prevention program provides junior and senior high school students and other at –risk adolescent groups the knowledge and skills to recognize, respond to, and prevent date rape/dating violence. In 2009, Women Helping Women served 1,935 adolescents. “This program really helped me realize how to know what is healthy and unhealthy, and the relationships I will have in the future will help me see if it’s going okay.” “I’ve learned more about my rights and more about what is considered rape.”
