Founded in 1977, the Council Against Domestic Assault (CADA) began with a group of concerned community members who wanted to help support their family, friends and neighbors. The Council Against Domestic Assault grew to include Lansing's first domestic violence shelter and supportive services for survivors and their children. In recent years, CADA changed its name to EVE (End Violent Encounters) to reflect EVE's comprehensive services to survivors.
Today, End Violent Encounters has grown to provide supportive services such as advocacy, counseling, crisis intervention, children's programs and community education to survivors of many forms of violence including: domestic, sexual, stalking, and elder abuse.
To provide supportive services to survivors of domestic and sexual violence, while empowering our community through education and awareness.
EVE, End Violent Encounters is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that provides supportive services to survivors of domestic and sexual violence, stalking and elder abuse.
EVE programs use a nonjudgmental, supportive and strengths-based approach. They are client centered and are offered to all, regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation, gender, actual or perceived gender identities, ability, income, marital status, age, and veteran status. You do not have to live in Eaton or Ingham County to receive services.
