Intermountain Specialized Abuse Treatment Center is a private, nonprofit agency with a mission to provide specialized services to individuals and families affected by abuse, in order to help in the healing process and prevent future victimization.
The major focus of ISAT is the prevention and treatment of child abuse, domestic violence, substance abuse, and related issues through comprehensive outpatient programs.
ISAT currently operates centers in West Valley City, Provo, and St. George Utah.
Prior to August 1984, ISAT was known as the Village Counseling Center under the sponsorship of Utah Girl’s Village. Since both programs needed to develop in their own direction, and ISAT needed to broaden its scope to include male victims and offenders, ISAT became a completely independent agency with no connection to Utah Girls Village. ISAT changed its name in February 1994 to Intermountain Specialized Abuse Treatment Center to reflect its increased service to clients affected by all types of abuse, particularly domestic violence.
Many individuals have generously given of their time and resources to assist in the development of ISAT. The volunteer Board of Trustees is an integral part of the operation.
Minna Work served as the first President of the Board, followed by Lorin Pugh, Nicholas Smith, Craig Huntington, Rob Lange, Bonnie Duvall, Joe Woodward, and Olga Siggins, with the current president being Chad Bunn.
The ISAT Board of Trustees remain strongly committed to ISAT’s mission as demonstrated by their willingness to give of their time and expertise to further our goal of “Healing Families, Strengthening Lives.”
