Introducing Channel Missions' The Hiding Place, A Non-Profit Program Serving Domestic Violence Survivors

On 09/13/2023, Sheriff Rick Clark met with representatives from Channel Missions’ The Hiding Place, a non-profit program that serves domestic violence survivors.

The Hiding Place’s mission is to offer a safe and discreet place to recover from domestic violence with dignity, hope, and healing. Through The Hiding Place program, they provide emergency and transitional safe housing on a 40-acre safe property, a 24/7 hotline for community members to call for aid and support, counseling, including individual crisis and trauma counseling, group counseling, community support groups, resourcing for aid, including job training, case management, financial literacy classes transportation, job placement, and advocacy; including legal, medical, etc.

In addition, they’ve created partnerships within the community to aid their clients with other forms of services that they may require. These services are provided to their on-site clients who reside on The Hiding Place safe property and to clients they serve off-site who have stable, safe housing.

Channel Missions’ goal with The Hiding Place is to meet survivors where they are and to help them begin their journey towards healing.
