Carrie Taylor

ICAN's Carrie Taylor spoke at the OHCE Summer Council  on Monday about what ICAN does for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, harassment and stalking. 

Domestic violence victims often leave everything behind in order to get away from an abuser. 

The Intervention and Crisis Advocacy Network (ICAN) in Chickasha provides victims with what they need to start over. 

Carrie Taylor spoke at the OHCE Summer Council on Monday to discuss what ICAN does. 

ICAN has a new facility at 1501 W. Minnesota Ave. ICAN has a separate location in Chickasha that serves as an emergency shelter. 

From the first call to their 24-hour crisis hotline, ICAN stands with victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, harassment and stalking. ICAN offers services such as helping victims get a protective order, referring victims to services in Oklahoma, counseling and support groups, safety planning as well as meals and basic necessities. 

ICAN takes donations of clothing, furniture, toiletries, children's clothing and anything that may be needed in a home, Taylor said. 

Taylor said ICAN has branched out to El Reno and Canadian County and hopes to extend their services to Caddo County. 

ICAN representatives also speak at schools about bullying and teen dating violence.
