The mission of the Fremont County Alliance
Against Domestic Violence and Sexual
Assault, is dedicated to the empowerment of
victims and children and , committed to the
elimination of personal and societal violence
in the lives of victims and their children.
The Fremont County Alliance believes that
violence against individuals and their children
results from use of force or threats to achieve
and maintain control over others in intimate
relationships. We recognize that the abuses of
power in society fosters battering by
perpetuating conditions which condone violence
against victims and children. Therefore, it is the
goal of the Alliance to work for major social
changes necessary to eliminate both personal
and societal violence in our lives.
Our work includes providing safe space and
advocacy; generating alternatives in a
supportive non-judgmental atmosphere; offering
and improving public education; policy
development and innovative legislation; and
efforts to eradicate social conditions which
contribute to violence against victims and

Fremont County’s movement against Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault began in 1980 with a taskforce of concerned citizens, who met
to voice concerns about family violence and to problem solve solutions. In April of 1981 the group was incorporated, with Jacque Taylor being
selected as programs Executive Director, (and the only staff member at that time) answering crises calls from her home, Jacque held the
position of Executive Director until January of 1991, when she retired.
During the programs early period, the need for women and children to have a safe place to go when trying to leave a violent partner/home,
became increasingly apparent and in August of 1982, a 5 bedroom home was purchased to be used as a shelter. After some remodeling and
repairs the shelter opened on October 25th of 1982, sheltering our first woman, and 8 days later another woman and one child.
