Thank you for taking the time to register for the Marion County Centers of Hope Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event. This event is meant to bring awareness to the community on sexual assault and domestic violence during Sexual Assault Awareness Month and Victim's Rights Week. For this men will walk one mile in a pair of women's high heels. Women and children are welcome to join and are not required to wear heels but can come to support the men in their life.
The Marion County Centers of Hope are located at Community Health Network, Eskenazi Health, IU Health at Methodist and Riley, St. Francis and St. Vincent. Our teams of specially trained forensic nurses and social workers provide compassionate care to victims of sexual assault and domestic violence. We are sensitive to the special needs of each victim and work hard to ensure that they receive the best care and treatment. We offer forensic evidence collection, medical care and crisis counseling to all victims. We work collaboratively with law enforcement, prosecution, victim advocates and other service providers.
