We exist to eliminate domestic violence in Central Texas by sheltering victims of domestic violence and by preventing abuse from occurring through intervention and education. Join us.
We Believe In
Victims are traumatized, suffer from low self-esteem and have limited access to resources; all of which keep them trapped in violent relationships. With safety, counseling, and supportive services, survivors of domestic violence experience healing and empowerment, and decide for themselves to live free of violence.
Early intervention, prevention education, domestic violence education, and community awareness can interrupt the intergenerational cycle of violence and reduce the social acceptance of domestic violence.
Children from violent homes experience trauma, suffer psychologically, physically, emotionally and socially. Family Abuse Center recognizes child witnesses as primary victims of domestic violence.
Every individual in our community can become more aware of how to prevent, intervene and be less tolerant of domestic violence.
