A Survivor’s Story
Abuse can come in many forms: mental, sexual and physical. Unfortunately I was the victim of two of them.
It started when I was dating my ex-husband the mental abuse became apparent after two years of dating. Nothing was ever good enough! I lived my life walking on egg shells. An abuser will tear you down to nothing and make you believe that no one else would want you. My nightmare that one day the abuse would escalate to physical abuse would come true.

Prevail Partners with Energizing Indiana
In an effort to give back to the community, Energizing Indiana has created an incentive program that nonprofit organizations in Indiana may enroll in to receive up to $25,000 a year. For every supporter of Prevail who completes a Home Energy Assessment through Energizing Indiana, Prevail will receive $25 – up to $25,000 per program year!
Prevail’s supporters benefit by receiving an Energizing Indiana Home Energy Assessment that can help raise a home’s performance, lower energy consumption, improve in-home air quality and increase the home’s value.
Home Energy Assessments are funded by utility rates, and there are NO separate fees to participate. This program is available to electric customers of Duke Energy, Indiana Michigan Power (I&M), Indianapolis Power & Light Company (IPL), NIPSCO and Vectren, as well as communities served by the Indiana Municipal Power Agency (IMPA). More information is available at www.energizingindiana.com/programs/residential-home-energy-assessments.

Madeline Gives Back!
Madeline is an eight year old with a big heart! She attends Durbin elementary school and has always enjoyed doing things for other people. When she was just two years old she sat on Santa’s lap and asked for things not only for herself, but for any children that didn’t have as much as she did. She has decided to focus her kind attitude toward Prevail and the children that come into our agency at Christmas that may not have as much either. Please help her give back as well!
Prevail Receives Funding for 2013 Project
Prevail, Inc. has received funding from the National Association of VOCA Assistance Administrators through a grant from the Office for Victims of Crime, within the Office of Justice Programs, U.S. Department of Justice, to promote community awareness of crime victims’ rights and services during 2013 National Crime Victims’ Rights Week.
The week of April 21 – 27, 2013, is National Crime Victims’ Rights Week. This annual observance, first designated by President Ronald Reagan in 1981, seeks to increase general public awareness of, and knowledge about the wide range of rights and services available to people who have been victimized by crime. The theme for 2013 National Crime Victims’ Rights Week is “New Challenges. New Solutions.”
Prevail was one of the 77 projects recommended by the National Association of VOCA Assistance Administrators and selected for funding by OVC for 2013 from the 169 applications that were submitted nationwide.
The Community Awareness Project that will be sponsored in Hamilton County will be a Criminal Justice “Odyssey” Open House Learning Activity, held on April 25, 2013. The open house will be a collaboration with Alternatives, Inc. ( an emergency domestic violence shelter located in Madison County) and many other agencies in Hamilton County that assist victims of crime. The event will focus on taking community members through each step of the experiences a victim would encounter when affected by a crime.
For additional information about 2013 National Crime Victims’ Rights Week activities or about victims’ rights and services in Hamilton County please contact Prevail’s Public Relations Coordinator, Natasha Robinson at 773-6942 or visit our Web site at www.prevailinc.com.
