Missouri State Charity

True North

True North began as the “The Shelter” in the 1970’s when a group of University of Missouri graduate students formed a volunteer organization to serve survivors of rape. As soon as the organization became known, the volunteers were overwhelmed with requests for service by women who were experiencing intimate partner violence. True North is now a comprehensive domestic and sexual violence victim service program. The services provided are designed to empower those who have been battered or abused by an intimate partner, enabling them to begin the healing process and work towards regaining control of their lives again.
