Founded in 1975, The Julian Center is the largest organization supporting victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and other life crises in Indiana. We touch the lives of over 6,000 Hoosier survivors each year and empower them to recover and build a life for themselves and their families absent of abuse. But we can’t do it alone. The support we receive from our community is crucial to running our survivor services and programs. So how can you help?

  1. Make a monetary donation. Did you know a $100 donation can provide four hours of staffing to our 24-hour crisis line? Through our secure online donation form, you can choose to make a one-time gift or set-up a monthly, quarterly, semi-annual or annual gift. We also have options for memorial and honorary gifts, as well as planned giving.
  2. Donate items from our wish list. Survivors escaping abuse often don’t have time to plan or pack personal belongings. Donations from our wish list help care for adults and children forced to leave their homes and belongings for safety. Donation requests and drop-off instructions are kept up-to-date on our website or shop our Amazon wish list.
  3. Shop and/or donate at Thrifty Threads. Did you know that our clients shop at Thrifty Threads for free? In 2020, we provided more than $24,000 in shopping vouchers to our clients. Your in-kind donations of clothing, furniture, and toys allow our clients to start over and to live a life free of abuse. Because Thrifty Threads is owned and operated by The Julian Center, when you shop there, you are also helping to support our survivor programs. Check our website for a list of items Thrifty Threads can and can’t accept as well as drop-off instructions.
  4. Follow us on social media and share. We need your help to spread our messages. When you interact with our posts on social media, we can reach more survivors in need of our services and more potential donors, which means more lives saved and positively changed. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

The Julian Center is a 501c3 organization under the Internal Revenue Code and all monetary and in-kind donations to the Julian Center are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
