DVA/SAC offer refuge for victims in Jasper County
Whether sexual or physical abuse, there is help locally
According to numbers provided by Iowa Coalition Against Domestic Violence, “more than 30 percent of American women report being physically or sexually abused by a husband or boyfriend at some point in their lives.
Sue Tufte is the Outreach Services Coordinator for Domestic Violence Alternatives and the Sexual Assault Center, and she wants the people of Jasper County to know help is available.
“Our agency is a dual agency,” Tufte said. “There are some projects in the State of Iowa that only concentrate on either sexual assault or domestic violence. We concentrate on both. We cover Marshall, Tama, Poweshiek, and Jasper Counties. We have an outreach office here in Newton, our main office and shelter is Marshalltown. And that shelter is utilized by all four counties. So if a family, or a single woman or a single person would need to come into shelter from like Jasper County, and they didn’t have transportation we would transport them. And it would be anytime day or night.”
