About Our Organization

Hope Crisis Center is committed to empowering victims of domestic violence and sexual assault throughout seven counties in southeast Nebraska, including Gage County.

“I was not equipped to go through this alone. There was no judgement or ridicule. I was the victim. They wanted me to be safe.”—Hope Crisis Center client

  • Services: 24-hour hotline, temporary shelter, emergency assistance, client advocacy, legal advocacy, medical advocacy, bilingual advocacy, information and referrals

  • Impact: Between January 1, 2020 and December 31, 2020, Hope Crisis Center helped 507 adults and 98 children get to safety. During that time, 40 adults and 44 children received shelter for a total of 900 shelter nights, an average of 22 nights per family. We also fielded 3,971 calls on our 24-hour hotline.

  • Project: There is no safety without shelter. As a domestic violence/sexual assault program, providing shelter to those displaced by violence is foundational to our mission. Unfortunately, the upcoming loss of our existing Beatrice shelter space, along with critical shortages in hotel availability due to an influx in visitors, limits our capacity to provide emergency shelter in our southernmost counties. The Building Hope Capital Campaign for Safe Shelter ensures that this life-saving service remains available for victims in counties with limited or inconsistent hotel vacancies. By remodeling a facility that includes trauma-informed client spaces and two shelter apartments, we can continue to build hope for those impacted by domestic violence.

  • Goal: With your support, we hope to raise $7,500 during Big Give Gage! This will go toward our $550,000 goal for the Building Hope Capital Campaign for Safe Shelter!

“With your help, I am now able to breath, smile, and live out my days enjoying the things around me, instead of living in fear.” –Hope Crisis Center client
