Mission Statement

The mission of the Crisis Center is to offer the communities we serve education, advocacy and intervention allowing individuals to find positive solutions for personal crises. Through support, hope and education we strive to restore emotional balance to both individuals and the communities in which they live.

The Crisis Center works towards our mission when our trained Crisis Intervention workers respond immediately to support people in crisis: people with thoughts of suicide, victims of domestic violence, victims of sexual assault, and those unsure of where to turn for assistance. Our staff and volunteers also provide emotional support and daily calls to home-bound individuals who need a reassuring phone call. Response is immediate with follow up support if necessary. We promote awareness of suicide risk, domestic violence and sexual assault throughout the community.


Description

A 40-hour training in the area of Crisis Intervention Skills are offered at The Crisis Center. Classes are free with a one year commitment to the agency.

Build your resume, earn scholarship points, or devote part of your retirement to helping your neighbors and making new friends.

The Crisis Center Hotline is there for people 24-hours a day, 365 days a year. Emphasis is on working with victims of interpersonal crime, elder and child abuses, and other personal crisis situations.

by Lynn V. from Bristol, TN (April 8, 2009)
I have experience spouse abuse and with that came mental, emotional and physical abuse. It took me a long time to get the courage to leave but with the help of a very good friend seen me through and I just want to be able to go out and help other women in this situation.
