Violence Support Services

The City of West St. Paul has an innovative and personalized plan when it comes to support services for survivors of sexual abuse and domestic violence. The city partners with 360 Communities, a nonprofit agency that serves Dakota County, and their Community Advocate, Ana J.

Ana helps survivors by connecting them with resources and services that are available to help. She advocates for those she serves and her support connections cover a swath of services, including Lewis House Shelters for individuals and families escaping domestic violence, the Partners for Success program to help kids succeed, the Safe at Home Program for address confidentiality, and much, much more.

Ana's role as a Community Advocate can help survivors get the safety net they need underneath them so they can get their lives back in order and on track. Fluent in both English and Español, Ana's services cross the language barrier.

If you or someone you know are in need of assistance regarding a domestic or sexual violence related issue, reach out to Ana J at ajanuary@wspmn.gov, or call her at (651) 552-4218.
