There will be raffles and pop-up vendors on-site raising funds to support Austin's very own SafePlace in their new endeavor, Eloise House, a facility for sexual assult survivors. A suggested donation at the door of $5 will also be donated to Eloise House.
Eloise House is a comfortable and bright space that was made possible through the generous donation of Paul Mitchell, and was named in honor of his wife. The Eloise House will be available to victims of sexual assault in Austin and the surrounding areas 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Eloise House will be staffed by 17 Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners (SANE) who have all received special training to conduct sexual assault evidentiary exams for rape victims. SafePlace’s intent with Eloise House was to open a clinic at SafePlace where survivors could go for exams, and feel safe, comfortable, and avoid a long wait time (sometimes up two days) commonly associated with hospitals. Eloise House is now the only place in Austin to get an exam by a SANE Nurse.
