Welcome To Help In Crisis

“Mission Statement: Help In Crisis exists to break the cycle of violence for victims and their children through transformational care that seeks to educate and empower.”

Vision: A community where peace prevails.

Crisis Intervention

The Help In Crisis hotline has become a vital link for victims of domestic violence and their families.

Domestic Violance Advocacy

The Court Advocacy Program offers support and assistance as survivors navigate complex and sometimes overwhelming court systems.

Rape and Sexual Assault Advocacy

If you are forced to have sex when you don’t want to, it is rape, even if you are married to your assailant.

Emergency Shelter

Each year, approximately 250 women and 100 children come through our shelter.


A pattern of abusive behavior in any relationship that is used by one partner to gain or maintain control over another intimate partner. There are many different forms of abuse in domestic violence such as physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, economic abuse, psychological abuse, threats, stalking, and cyberstalking.


Rape is a violent crime-a hostile attack, an attempt to hurt and humiliate. It is not the result of “uncontrolled passions”.
Rape can happen to anyone: students, working women, wives, mothers, children, grandmothers, and even males are the victims of rape.
