Places that Help: Indiana
WomensLaw regrets that these resources have not been updated recently. However, please note that the legal content on the Know the Laws section is updated annually and the rest of the website is also updated regularly.
Included in this list are shelters and local programs that provide support, counseling, safety planning, and other services to victims of abuse. If you cannot get help from the organization nearest you, you might want to try calling one in a neighboring county. (Have a suggestion or correction? Contact us!)
Please note that we list the organizations by the county where the office is located – however, many offices serve multiple counties. You can click the “View All” to look through the complete list of organizations. If you are looking for an attorney to represent you in court or to give you legal advice about your situation, go to our Finding a Lawyer page instead.
