ORGANIZATION DESCRIPTION

Founded in 1972, 1736 Family Crisis Center provides emergency, critical care, and rehabilitative services for extremely vulnerable, often injured children, families and individuals who are facing or fleeing life-threatening circumstances. It promotes long-term safety and self-sufficiency through a continuum of residential and outpatient services tailored to address individual needs.

GRANT PURPOSE

The Domestic Violence Program provides training and support for therapists who will treat survivors and to support a Domestic Assault Response Team (DART) advocate who will help victims of domestic violence leave the batterer. 

Our agency intervenes with life-saving services during the most critical, dangerous times for victims of violence. It allows us to empower them through a facilitated, survivor-centered pathway to long-term independence, self-determination, and safety
