We are dedicated to providing a safe haven, crisis intervention and comprehensive support services to victims of family violence and sexual assault. We are further dedicated to breaking the cycle of family and sexual violence through community education while assisting victims in their transition to a more stable and self-sufficient life.
The Crisis Center is designated as an emergency shelter by the Health and Human Services Commission - one of only 73 in the entire state of Texas. We began operation as the Rape Crisis Line of Grayson County on March 1st, 1976. In 1986, we changed our name to the Crisis Center, and we continue to operate as an independent, non-profit organization. We serve approximately 600 children and women each year without charge. We educate the public through: community forums, public service announcements, billboards, brochures, school presentations, presence at community festivals and fairs, and TV appearances.
