COPE’s mission statement is “To support the principle that all individuals have the right to a life free of abuse.” The Board of Directors, staff and volunteers of COPE share a strong commitment to increasing public awareness of domestic violence and providing a protective environment for victims and their children. In providing for the emergency needs of people we will not discriminate for any reason including but not limited to the distinctions of race, religion, national origin, sex, handicapping conditions, or age.
At COPE, Inc., we offer so much more than a safe and secure shelter for women and children. We provide resources and assistance to men, provide court support services for victims of crime, collaborate with medical facilities and hospitals with our sexual assault program, offer education through our Preventing Abuse and Violence Everyday (PAVE) in area schools, facilitate weekly support groups, organize community awareness programs, offer financial assistance, provide life skills programs, support children through age appropriate programs along with our 24-hour hotline and crisis intervention. We work one on one with individuals to empower them and equip them with the necessary tools to lead a life free from violence.
