Family Crisis Center receives $10,000+ from People Who Care
Representatives of the Family Crisis Center show off the “big check” for more than $10,000 after being chosen for the quarterly gifts from 100+ People Who Care, Barton County.

The Family Crisis Center Inc. is the 2022 fourth-quarter recipient of $10,000+ in charitable donations from members of the 100+ People Who Care in Barton County group. The vision of The Family Crisis Center is for communities to be empowered by awareness, resources and accurate information so we recognize victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse in all its forms and provide advocacy and support. In addition to providing families of abuse with access to community resources, the center operates the Child Advocacy Center and the Domestic and Sexual Violence Center and shelter.

The Family Crisis Center Inc. also exists to promote education in the communities it serves through presentations to civic groups, schools and organizations in hopes of identifying victims and increasing awareness.

The quarterly pledges of the 100+ People Who Care members will assist the center in purchasing curriculum to be utilized with middle and high school students that will address personal safety, body awareness and stranger danger. Funding will also assist with resource staff needs for presentations, brochures for parents, and curriculum for parenting classes.

At that time, representatives from The Family Crisis Center will return to provide an update on how the organization is utilizing the $10,000+ gift. Members will also vote to select and nominate local, charitable organizations to receive future funds. More details can be found on the group’s website, or on its Facebook page.
