Project Horizon is dedicated to reducing domestic, dating, and sexaul violence in the Lexington, Buena Vista, and Rockbridge County area through crisis intervention services and prevention programs.
We are here to help, and provide services to anyone who is experiencing domestic, dating violence or sexual assault. These free and confidential services include a 24-hour hotline (463-2594), emergency shelter, crisis intervention, counseling, applicable referrals, and legal advocacy. It is our goal to work with survivors and to provide support, information and education to help survivors meet their individual goals and create a community, through our outreach initiatives and prevention programs, that is healthy and safe.
This non-profit agency began in 1982 as a grassroots effort to provide confidential services free of charge to battered women in the Rockbridge County area. In 1996, Project Horizon merged with the Rockbridge Area Coalition Against Sexual Assault (RACASA) and began providing services to victims of dating, domestic, and sexual violence.
Project Horizon has ten full-time positions, 8 part-time positions, a Board of Directors, and over 30 volunteers that help accomplish the work we do.
