The Family Crisis Center promotes and provides safety to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault while engaging the community.
The Family Crisis Center is a public non-profit agency incorporated in February of 1987. We began as an effort to bring services closer to our local communities.
We provide information and education to Madison, Fremont, Jefferson, and Clark County residents to reduce the number of incidents of domestic violence and sexual assault. We currently have a comprehensive information and referral network of community resources for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. We operate under a Board of Directors with diverse backgrounds, education, and skills. They meet once a month to guide and oversee the staff.
Program services include a 24-hour crisis line, shelter, crisis intervention services, immediate on-scene intervention with Law Enforcement, referral to emergency medical services, and legal advocacy. We also provide weekly women’s support groups, weekly children’s support group, women’s individual counseling, a batterer’s treatment program, community education and public awareness, and a community food bank and thrift store.
The Family Crisis Center serves a large rural area in southeast Idaho of approximately 4,500 square miles. Total population for this area is approximately sixty thousand people. The population is widely scattered and mostly rural and includes a minority subculture composed of Hispanic farm and warehouse workers. Thirteen percent of the population is below the poverty level.
We are a founding member Upper Valley Task Force against Sexual and Domestic Violence, along with the Madison County prosecutor.
Our first priority is always geared towards helping victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.
All our services are available at no cost to our clients.
We primarily serve clients in Jefferson, Madison, Fremont, and Clark County. Our clients are those who are victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. We have strict confidentiality protocols that we honor. We are required to report: child abuse, danger to self, and danger to others. Not all abuse is criminal, but we serve all victims of any type of abuse. We understand that domestic violence and sexual assault can happen to anyone, regardless of age, gender, ethnic background, economic background, orientation, or religion. Anyone in need of help is welcome to our services.
We provide the following services:
