In 1977 the Muscatine Community Health Foundation put together a task force headed by a local nurse (who continues to volunteer at our shelter) to address and combat rape/sexual assault and domestic violence. The Muscatine Community Health Foundation approached Family Resources Inc.'s Muscatine office and set up an agreement, to start up services to victims of rape/sexual assault and domestic violence in MuscatineCounty. Thus in 1977 the Sexual Assault/Domestic Abuse Advocacy Program and Domestic Violence Shelter (SA/DAAP) were created. SA/DAAP initially sheltered clients in a 1 .5 bedroom apartment or referred them to other shelters outside of Muscatine. After assessing the need for a larger shelter facility, SA/DAAP embarked on a community capital campaign in 1997. The campaign raised funds to purchase and renovate the current shelter, which opened on November 7, 1998. During this period, services continued and collaborations with other agencies were enhanced. SA/DAAP now has a walk-in program for Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence survivors and a 24-hour staffed Shelter.
