Humboldt Park

The Humboldt Park Outreach Program (HPOP) focuses its bilingual services on women and children living in the community so that they can increase their safety, self-esteem, and better understand the resources available to assist them.

HPOP provides a full range of bilingual and bicultural (Spanish/English) core domestic violence services to women on a walk-in or appointment basis.

HPOP is a community based counseling outreach program for those victims of domestic violence who either have left shelter and begun independent living or have not yet made the decision to leave their abuser. A team of professionals provides advocacy and support services including but not limited to crisis intervention, counseling, safety planning, information and referral and legal advocacy on an individual as well as group basis.

HPOP also offers an enhanced child services component. This includes assessment, individualized treatment plans, individual therapy and family therapy. Education about violence and abuse, as well as self-esteem building exercises strengthen a child’s coping skills.

Since coming here I have realized that the abuse is not my fault.
