MATTHEW CROOK,

COORDINATOR

The Guymon Satellite office has been serving Texas County, and the surrounding areas, since 1995. We have a shelter for immediate safety, as well as trained staff to help survivors, and their families, of abuse cope with their reality and educate them on how to regain control of their own lives and learn self-determination and independence.

We would just like to thank all those involved in allowing us to complete much needed repairs on one of our shelter bathrooms.

A special Thanks goes out to Pantoja Construction, Superior Plumbing, and Lehr Electric for all of your hard work.

ADVOCACY:

     Our advocates are trained and certified specifically in the areas of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault. We also provide services related to Human Trafficking and Stalking. 

Services provided include, but are not limited to:

  • Safe Environment (Shelter)
  • Intake and Assessment
  • Development of Safety Plans, addressing specific situations
  • Accompaniment to case related services. (e.g. - Law Enforcement, Court, Medical Services)
  • Protective Orders



EDUCATION:

     NWDCS is dedicated to providing education to both survivors, and the public, about Domestic and Sexual Violence, Human Trafficking, and Stalking. We also provide education on topics such as Teen Dating Violence and Animal Abuse (and how it is used to maintain control over a victim). 

     If you would like to have us come and do a presentation for your organization, give us a call and we will be happy to provide education to your organization members.



SHELTER SERVICES:

     There is a safe shelter in Guymon that provides immediate safety for survivors once they have made the decision to leave an abusive situation. The shelter is considered to be a confidential location. It is a communal living arrangement and is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. There is always someone there to help with client's needs. 

     Other shelter services include, but are not limited to:

  • Food
  • A Clothing Closet
  • Play Area for children
  • Pet Friendly (with limitations, in accordance with County/State ordinance)
  • 24/7 Staff Support
  • Laundry Facility



RAPID RE-HOUSING and PREVENTION:

     Along with assisting survivors of abuse, NWDCS is also dedicated to helping put an end to homelessness. With our Rapid Re-Housing and Prevention Program, we are able to put forth a solid effort toward ending homelessness. This program does have eligibility requirements.

  • Rapid Re-Housing
    • ​Through grant funding, the re-housing program allows us to help an individual, who meets the criteria for 'Literally Homelessness', obtain more permanent housing. Through this funding we can help with a portion of the initial costs to moving into a new home.
  • Prevention
    • ​Prevention is the notion of helping a family to catch up on overdue rent, and/or utility bills, to keep them from becoming homeless. Many families fall on hardship once in a while, we want to try and help.
