About This Project

Domestic Violence Non-Profit Opens Simi Valley Site

The Coalition for Family Harmony, a nonprofit that helps victims of domestic violence and sexual assault, has a new location in Simi Valley.


The coalition’s main office, in Oxnard, can be a long commute for residents in east Ventura County, said Caroline Prijatel-Sutton, executive director.


“Approximately 35 percent of our clients originate from the east county, and we have found that it becomes very difficult emotionally, physically, and financially for victims to commute to our main office in Oxnard for services,” Prijatel-Sutton said.


The head of the coalition’s board, Ted Weiner, led the move to Simi Valley in response to a growing demand for services in eastern Ventura County.


“Having an office in Simi Valley gives those victims the peace of mind that they are receiving services in a familiar area that is convenient,” Prijatel-Sutton said.


The Simi Valley center is at 980 Enchanted Way, Suite 207. Appointments must be scheduled by calling 983-6014.


Prijatel-Sutton said hours at the new location vary but that the main office is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays and the 24-hour crisis line, 800-300-2181, is always available.


The Simi Valley office provides individual, group and family counseling, children’s play therapy, support groups for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault, groups on raising children and support groups for victims of teen dating violence.


Domestic violence and sexual assault affect all communities, Prijatel-Sutton said.


“It is our hope that having accessible services will give those that were once scared to talk about this issue the ability to heal,” she said. “We look forward to being a part of the Simi Valley community.”
