The Family Crisis Center Inc. announced the re-launch of its website Tuesday. Located at www.familycrisiscntr.org, the site has been re-designed to reflect the center’s new logo and gives information about domestic violence, sexual violence, and stalking along with available services and contact information.
“The website allows us to reach a greater number of people in the ten counties we serve and beyond,” said Laura Patzner, center executive director. “The re-designed site is very exciting but everyone needs to understand that accessing a website is not confidential and activity can be traced.”
In addition to the redesigned site, the agency unveiled its Facebook page www.facebook.com/FamilyCrisisCenter/, developed to share information and engage others to learn more about domestic and sexual violence so that they can become more involved in efforts to prevent and eliminate it.
“Facebook friends will see links to articles of interest, reminders of upcoming events and trainings, and instantly be a part of the conversation around ending domestic violence and sexual assault in our communities,” said Patzner.
“While we understand that not everyone has access to the web, these new sites are important tools that create a flow of information to our community partners, citizens and to survivors who do access the web and may not know that help is available,” Patzner said.
The Family Crisis Center provides advocacy and services to survivors of domestic and sexual violence 24-hours a day seven days a week in Barber, Barton, Comanche, Edwards, Kiowa, Ness, Pawnee, Pratt, Rush and Stafford counties. Education and training for service providers and community members is available upon request.
