With a year of national and media emphasis on #MeToo, Voices of Hope has seen an unprecedented increase in survivors coming through our doors for help. Be a donor and help us end the cycle of domestic and sexual violence in Lincoln.
What has been happening in the news has become emotionally disturbing and exhausting for many women in our community and around the country. In response to the climate around issues of sexual violence and harassment, First-Plymouth would like to respond with a voice of compassion and hope.
The women clergy of First-Plymouth will hold a special worship service on Mon. November 5, at 7:00pm. Their aim is to use this as an opportunity to have a faithful voice of compassion, comfort, strength and encouragement for those who have feeling the weight of all that has been in the news.

February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month and Voices of Hope is partnering with the Lincoln Public Libraries to promote it among Lincoln’s teens. Throughout the month, at each public library, readers can pick up a free bookmark that highlights facts about signs of healthy and unhealthy relationships. Readers are asked to consider whether the relationships in the book they are are reading are healthy or unhealthy. The bookmarks, created by Voices of Hope, share information about healthy versus unhealthy relationships and how readers can help someone in an unhealthy relationship. We want Lincoln to know that everyone deserves a healthy relationship, not an abusive one. A huge shout-out to Lincoln Public Libraries for partnering with us in this project to help end dating violence in our community!

All of us at Voices of Hope are sad to share the news that our friend, co-worker and long-time advocate Linda Gray died on Sunday, Sept. 4th, after a brief but brave struggle with pancreatic cancer. Linda was an advocate at Voices of Hope for over 20 years, which is practically unheard of in this stressful career field. Throughout those years she was a skilled, tireless, empowering and creative advocate for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. Countless numbers of our clients benefitted from her advocacy on their behalf. She was also a mentor for new advocates and interns who learned from her wisdom and experience. Linda was a silent leader within our agency who we all relied on at difficult times. She will be missed terribly by all of us at Voices of Hope, as well as by those we serve.
Voices of Hope is seeking a full-time Clinical Director. This position reports to the Executive Director and has primary responsibility for overseeing and coordinating client services. This position provides consultation, individual counseling, and advocacy to clients and shares responsibility with staff for crisis line, in-house advocacy, and staff-on-call coverage.
