ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION
The Crisis Center provides direct service programs to nearly 700 clients a year, including emergency shelter, individual and group therapy, legal advocacy and community-based advocacy. We respond to over 2,000 calls to our 24-hour crisis line and reach over 5,000 individuals through our outreach, education and prevention efforts. All services offered by the Crisis Center are free to clients and meet best practices of trauma informed care.
As one client recently said: “No one really talks about or acknowledges domestic violence in upper socio-economic demographics, but the impact is just as real and, in some ways, even harder to overcome. The Crisis Center and its supporters helped me tremendously, but more importantly my son has improved as a result of the resources at the Crisis Center. It is one of the few places my challenges have been understood and supported because domestic violence usually only ends once someone dies.”
The Crisis Center exists to end domestic violence through advocacy, education and prevention; while helping communities live free of violence.
