The Vision

The vision of the Family Crisis Center, Inc. is for communities to be empowered by awareness, resources and accurate information so we recognize victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse in all its forms to provide the advocacy, support, reduce trauma and become the victim centered world we all deserve to live in.

About Our Organization

The Family Crisis Center, Inc., based in Great Bend, Kansas, provides advocacy and support to all survivors and secondary victims of domestic and sexual violence, child abuse and neglect while encouraging social change through awareness, education and prevention. From our 24-hour crisis hotline to supportive services to professional training, we offer hope and healing for families experiencing domestic and sexual violence, child abuse and neglect. To accomplish this mission, we operate two programs catered to two different types of victims.

  • The Domestic and Sexual Violence Center creates a safe environment for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault to understand the resources and options available to them and get support as they begin to heal from the trauma. These services are available 24-hours a day, seven days a week. Services for the DSVC are provided in Barton, Barber, Comanche, Edwards, Kiowa, Ness, Pawnee, Pratt, Rush & Stafford counties. We also operate shelters for victims in both Great Bend and Larned, Kansas.

  • The Child Advocacy Center (CAC) provides professional, collaborative relationships with partners as well as compassionate services to children and families who have experienced abuse in a family-friendly environment. The CAC becomes involved with the children and families upon referral from Department for Children and Families (DCF) and/or Law Enforcement in order to assist with the investigative process and provide services through referrals as well as advocacy to the child and family. Services for the CAC are provided in Barton, Pawnee, Rice, Ellsworth, Pratt, and Stafford Counties.
