    Remarks

    Healthy Families First

    Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Education and Prevention Program

    Violence against women is NOT traditional. Women are honored and considered valuable community members.

    Respect and non-violence toward all people are essential for healthy families.  Yet today, Native women are experiencing domestic and sexual violence at higher rates than other women in the United States.

    The Coquille Indian Tribe received a grant from the Department of Justice’s Office on Violence Against Women, with a goal of reducing and preventing domestic violence as well as facilitating healing from acts of violence against women and girls. Our program offers educational outreach for prevention and healing in Coos, Curry, Douglas, Lane and Jackson counties.

    We have a Tribal advocate who can help you navigate resources in your community as well as the resources offered by the Tribe, and who can provide valuable support when making difficult decisions. All interactions with our advocate are respectful and confidential.

    Non-discrimination and equitable access

    Pursuant to federal and state law, community-based advocacy programs receiving federal or state grant funding shall not discriminate, withhold services, or provide preferential treatment on the basis of actual or perceived race, color, religion, national origin, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, or disability.

      Learn more about non-discrimination

    Certain information shared between certified advocates and victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, or stalking is protected under Oregon state law. 

      Learn more about confidentiality

    If you have had a negative experience with a shelter or advocacy program, we recommend speaking directly with that organization's executive director or other management personnel. 

    If that fails to resolve the dispute, or you feel that the organization has treated you unfairly, you have the option of submitting a formal complaint to the Oregon Department of Human Services.

    The Oregon Coalition Against Domestic & Sexual Violence provides training, research and other support to our member programs, in the interest of better serving survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking throughout the state. We do not have regulatory oversight or supervisory authority over our member programs.

    STEP 2: Go to the claim ownership page

    3. Pages already claimed by others.
      Claim ownership page
    STEP 3: Find your program in the list

    If you see a blue "CLAIM" button next to your program, that means you may claim ownership. Click the button and follow the on-screen instructions.

    NOTE: Each FIND HELP page can have only one designated owner. If someone has already claimed ownership over your program's page, you won't be allowed to submit a claim request.

    If you can't find your program in the list, or your program's page has been claimed by someone you don't recognize, email Jonathan Gates (link sends e-mail), OCADSV Communications and Events Coordinator.

    STEP 4: Wait for approval

    All page ownership requests must be approved by coalition staff, to ensure that only authorized individuals are given access.

    You can expect to receive an update by email within two business days.

    STEP 5: Edit your FIND HELP page

    If your request is approved, log back in to the OCADSV Members Portal, go to your program's page, and click the "Edit" tab at the top.
