WTHI-TV and Terre Haute Saving Bank is putting the Community Spotlight on CODA for the month of October. CODA, stands for The Council on Domestic Abuse.


Domestic abuse can happen to anyone. CODA’s Executive Director, Sarah Campbell said, “it could be anybody. it could be your neighbor, it could be your best friend, it could be your sister and you have no idea."

The Council on Domestic Abuse works to eliminate abuse in our society. "We're not going to encourage them to do something they're not ready to do. We just want to help them in any way we can."

CODA wants you to seek help. Call the 24-hour hotline, learn about the emergency shelter, and take a look at their programs.

Campbell added, "We have beds for 45 victims in the shelter, but aside from that we offer prevention and education services to the Wabash Valley. We hope to reach 4,000 people individually with presentations by the end of this year."

Letting the abused in our community know, they're not alone.

"Just last week we had a little boy bring in one dollar to donate to CODA. It means so much to us, because that's how our advocates know they're truly making a difference in our community. and people are seeing that,” said Campbell.
