Single Parents Rock, a local nonprofit that helps victims of domestic violence, opened an office in Englewood. The new office will help the organization better serve victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking in the Dayton area and throughout Montgomery County.

“We can provide a safe spot for clients if they needed to stay all day. When we looked for space, we wanted a warm and welcoming space and we have that now,” said CEO of Single Parents Rock Denise Henton.

Prior to this location, Henton and her staff would meet clients in restaurants until a local attorney let them use office space while they found a location. Henton said the location helps them broaden their ability to reach those that may need their services.

The new office space has a conference room, a large meeting area, two private offices and a kid friendly waiting area with a pantry that Henton said will have snacks and food for kids as well as diapers and wipes.

The Dayton native and her team will use the location to provide a range of services from safety planning and support groups to even transportation and to ultimately close the gap between resources and those that need them.

She started the organization in January 2019 after witnessing family members deal with domestic violence situations and lack of resource while working for local agencies for four years.

“While working at some of the agencies I saw that there was a glitch with victims being able to get to court, having transportation to shelters and just a lack of resources for victims who are trying to flee domestic violence,” she said.
