A new chapter in a 45-year story…

Our organization was founded in 1976 with the intention to provide services to survivors of power-based personal violence in the Northern Kentucky, Buffalo Trace, and Greater Cincinnati areas.

Throughout the years our organization has used several names to present our services to our communities. The Rape Crisis Center of Northern Kentucky and Women’s Crisis Center were names that served us well. However, the growing normalization of violence prevention programs in our culture helped bring discussions of power-based personal violence to the forefront. This illuminated a much more pervasive problem and showed the need to present ourselves in new light to the communities we serve and reach out more effectively to the survivors of all identities who live there.

In 2021 we added a new chapter to a 45-year story. Our name was revealed to us by the philosophies that drive our center and the services we provide. Our identity shines in everything we do.

  1. I am from another county in Ky. I am going to leave my husband as soon as I can and he leaves to go somewhere so I can. He don’t work. He knows where the other shelters are. Can a person from counties outside your area stay in this shelter?

    1. The Ion Center

      Hello there. We are absolutely open to taking in people from other counties as long as we have room. The best thing to do is call or text us at (606) 564-6708 to help answer questions and get that process started.
