Family Abuse Center (FAC) provides emergency shelter for victims of domestic violence. Our services are free and your safety and security are our top priority. If you need shelter, call 1.800.283.8401
When a new family enters the shelter, it can be a difficult and scary time for children. The Children’s Services Coordinator (CSC) will meet with each child and provide him/her with some general information about what to expect during their time at the shelter and an explanation of some of the feelings that may come up during this transitional time. The CSC will consistently check in with each child in regard to the needs assessed during the initial meeting (ie clothing, medical, child care, counseling, etc).
FAC offers individual and group counseling for victims and their children. Counseling can include crisis intervention, safety planning, as well as therapeutic help in rebuilding your life. Counseling is available to shelter residents and non-residents. You are not required to live in our shelter to receive counseling services for yourself or your children. Call 1.800.283.8401
today to talk to someone about counseling services.
The role of the Rural Services program is to assist victims of domestic violence residing in rural counties and outlying areas including: Bosque, Falls, Freestone, Hill, Limestone, McLennan, and Navarro counties. The Rural Outreach team provides case management, counseling, and legal advocacy services for both residential and non-residential survivors.
Supportive Living Program (SLP)
The purpose of the Supportive Living Program (SLP) is to provide a safe, stable, and supportive place for survivors of domestic violence to live while they develop the skills, knowledge, and resources that they need in order to rebuild their lives and become self-sufficient. SLP provides rent assistance and supportive services for people who become homeless as a result of domestic violence.
FAC provides a support group for victims of domestic violence who do not reside at the shelter. Typically, the program lasts from 8-10 weeks with group discussions on: domestic violence education, co-dependency, boundaries, self-esteem, grief, anger management, shame, guilt, and self-care. Group therapy sessions are facilitated by a licensed professional (LCSW, LPC or LMSW).
