There's always something going on over here at our agency whether it's events, drives or volunteer gigs we've got a ton of opportunities for the community to give back, and boy does our community give back (THANK YOU!). We want to take a minute to just go back to the basics of what it's all about - how we help. 

OUR MISSION

We provide compassionate, comprehensive services to those impacted by rape, sexual abuse, and domestic violence, while partnering with our community to promote safety, hope, healing, justice, and prevention.

Everything we do on a daily basis goes back to our mission. We have a rockstar team making things happen every day. You can learn more about a few of the key players on our staff page or board page

HOW WE HELP

The resources available for victims of sexual and domestic violence are completely free and confidential. You can learn more about the various ways we help by checking out the "GET HELP" tab on our website. The snapshot below gives you a quick look into the services available including - shelter, transitional housing, counseling, play therapy and legal services. 

If you or someone you know would like to connect for services please call our 24-hour crisis line at 800-572-4031 or front desk at 940-387-5131. You can call just to ask questions and learn about resources or setup an intake appointment. 

HOW IT WORKS

When someone is ready to learn more about the resources available for them they can call our front desk at 940-387-5131 and schedule an intake appointment.

The sole purpose of this appointment is to learn more about their goals, assess their safety and how we can help. As far as the steps they take next... it is completely their decision. There is no obligation for them to access the services- it is their choice. We just ensure we are there to help them break down any barriers that may be getting in the way of accomplishing their goals and staying safe. We are here to support them.

It looks different for every client but the thing to remember is that help is available! If you or someone you know is the victim of sexual or domestic violence send them to Friends of the Family. We are the experts and we can help!
