The Lighthouse Center for Healing brings together specialists from a variety of DC-area organizations to assist victims of intimate partner violence, sexual violence and aggravated assault, as well as family members of victims. By combining resources and expertise into one central location, we provide the coordinated, collaborative care our clients need to heal and move forward with their lives. All services are free of charge.

The Lighthouse Center for Healing was started by and is partially sustained with funding from the District of Columbia Executive Office of the Mayor, Office of Victim Services (OVS). The Lighthouse was purchased through a grant from OVS made to the DC Rape Crisis Center. DCRCC owns and manages the facility and OVS continues to fund much of its operations.

Participating Organizations:

  • The DC Rape Crisis Center (DCRCC)
  • Deaf Abused Women’s Network (DAWN)
  • The DC Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) Program
  • Network for Victim Recovery of DC (NVRDC)
