ABOUT

Mission Statement: 

The Family Crisis Center promotes and provides safety to survivors 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 survivors 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, individual counseling resources and referral, community education and public awareness, and a community food bank and thrift store.

The Family Crisis Center does not discriminate in the delivery of services or benefits based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability or age. 

The Family Crisis Center is supported by funds awarded by the Idaho Council on Domestic Violence and Victim Assistance.

OUR SERVICES

Our first priority is always assisting survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault.

All our services are available at no cost to our clients. 

We serve clients in Jefferson, Madison, Fremont, and Clark Counties and surrounding areas. While we honor client confidentiality and encourage autonomy, we are required to report: child abuse, danger to self, and danger to others. We recognize not all abuse is criminal, but we serve all survivors 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.
