For nearly 40 years, The Alliance has empowered individuals beyond sexual and domestic violence through services, advocacy, education, and social change. Formerly known as the Alliance Against Domestic Abuse, The Alliance was founded in 1982 by a group of concerned local citizens. Today the agency is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization with seven paid staff members, an eight member Board of Directors, and over 15 volunteers serving over 600 individuals annually. The Alliance is the only organization serving Chaffee, northern Saguache, and Western Fremont Counties that provides a safe and confidential place for victims to receive 24-hour crisis assistance, counseling & safe housing.
We serve survivors directly through a 24/7 crisis line, safety planning, legal advocacy and assistance, emergency safehousing and long term housing assistance, support group, Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner exams, and referrals to a variety of resources. Additionally, we provide education about the prevalence and impacts of domestic and sexual violence through presentations, outreach activities, and partnerships with community organizations. Finally, we encourage culture change by being a resource to the public as well as survivors and by providing leadership on policy issues that impact our clients.
