Council on Domestic Violence (C.O.D.A.)  Emergency Shelter
The emergency shelter provides safe housing for victims of domestic violence or sexual assault and their minor children.

The shelter is located at 26 S. 17th Street in Terre Haute, Indiana.  If you are seeking shelter with us, you must first speak to one of our advocates.

Please call our 24-hour crisis line at 800-566-CODA if possible before arriving at the shelter. Security is maintained at all times by a staff that is on duty 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Each staff member is trained in First Aid and CPR. The shelter has 45 beds. Personal hygiene items, clothing, and food are provided at no charge. Pets are not allowed at the shelter, but arrangements can be made for at-risk pets to be boarded in a safe location. No illegal drugs or alcohol are allowed in shelter. A person who is currently under the influence of drugs or alcohol will not be allowed to enter the shelter until medical clearance is given by a hospital or physician. Normally, residents are housed in individual rooms, along with their children, unless doubling up becomes a necessity. Bathrooms and laundry facilities are shared. All adult residents are expected to share in cooking and cleaning duties. There is a large kitchen and dining area, TV/living area, and playroom, as well as outside play equipment. The shelter does not have child care facilities, so residents are responsible for watching their own children at all times, or making arrangements for outside child care. The shelter is located close to a bus line for those with no transportation.  While residing in the shelter, guests may continue their regular employment or education. A telephone is available for resident use. It is a corded phone and is much safer to use than individual cell phones.  CODA maintains a 24-hour-a-day, 365-days-a-year crisis line that provides crisis intervention, support, information, and referrals to community resources. CODA’s highest priority is the present safety of those calling the crisis line. Depending on the safety of the caller, information is taken that will lead trained staff to recommend options to the caller. Options may include emergency shelter, referrals to other agencies, protective orders, etc. Anyone calling CODA who is in a crisis situation should try, if possible, to call from a corded land line which is much safer than a cell phone. Anyone needing emergency shelter should also know how to disengage any GPS tracking device on vehicles, as they can also be traced.
