The Power Hour is Eliza Bryant Village’s newest program, presented in partnership with the Cleveland Rape Crisis Center. Designed to empower victims aged 50+ who have experienced sexual assault, stalking, domestic violence and dating violence, The Power Hour explores domestic abuse as well as the resources available to survivors in Cleveland. As part of this trauma-informed programming, facilitators also provide strategies to assist victims of abuse in the spiritual healing process.

The Power Hour takes place on the first Tuesday of every month from 11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. These meetings are free and open to the public.

If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact Denise Rembert, Outreach Social Worker, at (216) 658-2344.

About our Partner: Cleveland Rape Crisis Center’s (CRCC) mission is to support survivors of rape and sexual abuse, promote healing and prevention and advocate for social change. CRCC was founded in 1974 in response to Northeast Ohio’s persistent and growing need for services to support survivors of rape and sexual abuse. Over the last 46 years, CRCC has grown from a grassroots, volunteer-run hotline, to an 80-employee nonprofit and national leader in providing counseling services, victim assistance in the justice system, and 24-hour services to survivors of rape and sexual abuse across four counties.

This program is made possible through funding from The Office on Violence Against Women (OVW)’s Enhanced Training and Services to End Abuse Later in Life Grant Program. The OVW is a component of the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) which provides federal leadership in developing the national capacity to reduce violence against women and administer justice for and strengthen services to victims of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking. OVW grants support coordinated community responses to hold offenders accountable and serve victims.
