Survivor Stories

The vision of our founder, Dianne Masters, was to make a difference in peoples’ lives, to offer safety and help to those experiencing domestic violence.  The Crisis Center carries out that vision every day.  In the Survivor Stories section, you can read stories and testimonies about some of the people who have been helped because of a caring community of volunteers, staff, board members, and donors.

Individuals who receive assistance from the Crisis Center are our inspiration. 

How Your Donation Helps

 “Small acts, when multiplied by many people, can transform the world.” – Howard Zinn

Plain and simple.  Your donation matters.  Each and every dollar provides free services to individuals and families hurting because of abuse; not just physical abuse, but emotional, verbal, financial, and sexual abuse, as well.  Domestic violence touches every part of person’s life and that is why we are committed to helping the whole person.  Learn more about how your donations help transform victims into survivors.
