“Real courage owns up to the fact that we face a terrifying task, admitting that we are appropriately frightened, identifying sources of help and strength outside and within ourselves, and then going ahead and doing what needs to be done.”
– Dr. Alla Renne Bozarth
ASPEN – Abuse Support Prevention Education Network
We are a caring and dedicated non-profit organization providing shelter, support, referrals, and advocacy to victims of domestic and sexual violence in Meagher, Park and Sweet Grass counties of Montana.
One out of every three women will experience domestic violence during her lifetime and one out of every six will experience an attempted or completed rape. Education is key to changing this reality. Learn more about these issues and resources for seeking safety and helping others.
ASPEN provides free, confidential direct services such as a 24 hour crisis line, emergency shelter, support and advocacy, information & referrals, legal advocacy, community outreach, and educational programs.
ASPEN relies heavily on the generous support of community members to provide services to victims of domestic and sexual violence. You can help in a number of ways including donating your time, making a financial contribution, providing in-kind donations, or donating an old/used cell phone.
