KNFTHC Emergency Shelter

The goal of KNES is to help break the cycle of domestic violence and/or sexual assault as well as providing a safe and culturally aware environment while building the foundation for the healing journey as all our services are confidential, free and on a voluntary basis.

Some of these services may include counseling, confidential case management (employment readiness, job search, options for housing, basic life skills, etc.), direct assistance while working towards self-sustainability, as well as emotional support to the victim/survivor.  Staff can also assist in navigating civil legal matters and the ever-changing criminal justice process while we work together towards empowering you and you obtaining your goals to self-sufficiency and healing.

While sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, or stalking can affect victims in any age group, individuals who are 50 years of age or older who experience elder abuse, neglect, and exploitation can face unique barriers when receiving services. Recognizing this, The Kaw Nation Later in Life Program strives to alleviate gaps in direct services for elderly-specific survivors of abuse and continue to respond to the growing needs for victim/survivors in Kay County.
