Phoenix House Domestic Violence Shelter & Sexual Abuse Program


About the Phoenix House

The Phoenix House provides domestic violence and sexual abuse services to anyone faced with these issues through a 24-hour emergency shelter and crisis phone line, court advocacy, educational groups and through outreach to under-served populations.


The shelter provides safe, confidential living for up to eight families at a time. A large outdoor playground and an indoor playroom allow children a place where they can be kids, away from the fear of violence in their home.


Phoenix House Serves 9 Counties in Southwest Iowa:

  1. Audubon
  2. Cass
  3. Fremont
  4. Harrison
  5. Mills
  6. Montgomery
  7. Page
  8. Pottawattamie 
  9. Shelby

The 24-hour crisis phone line, staffed by fully trained volunteers and staff, provides support to individuals involved in violent relationships as well as people who have been sexually abused.


The Phoenix House also facilitates a support group and educational classes in domestic violence, providing a safe place for victims to tell their stories and receive the support and assistance they are in need of.


The highly trained staff provides medical and legal system advocacy and support. Advocates are available to anyone needing legal protection from their partner and also to provide support during court proceedings, police investigations, and medical appointments or in any other area.
