"The Family Crisis Center provides a soft place for victims of family violence and sexual assault to land in their time of need." (Charline Adame, A Beloved Former Employee) The Johnson County Family Crisis Center provides hope and healing to children, women, and men who have been or are currently living in an abusive environment. With approximately two-thirds (2/3) of our homeless shelter clients being children, we provide lifesaving, compassionate services to enable these children to live a life free of abuse in their personal homes.

Rookie Sacramento officer shot dead as she helps woman during domestic violence call

The most dangerous point in a domestic violence relationship is when the victim is attempting to leave or has left the relationship.

The officer that was shot and killed was standing by so the victim could get her things to leave. Our hearts and prayers go out to her family, friends and fellow officers.

It’s all about power and control. If you or someone you know is in a domestic violence relationship, the Family Crisis Center is available 24-hours a day, seven days a week.

TCFV is thrilled to report another win for survivor safety in Texas with the signing into law of SB 971! The new law supports law enforcement training as related to recognition of strangulation. More victims of intimate partner violence will receive immediate medical care and better prosecution outcomes with this training.

Burleson murder trial begins

One out of the 3 deaths Johnson County had due to intimate partner violence.

Domestic violence is happening in all cities, towns and neighborhoods.

PLEASE...if you suspect someone is being abused, let them know there are resources. When a victim decides to leave the situation, that is the most dangerous time.

The National Domestic Violence Hotline is: 1-800-799-SAFE. The hotline will assist anyone, anywhere at any time. They will patch the victim through to the shelter center in their geographic region or help them find shelter in another safe location.

The Family Crisis Center hotline is: 1-800-848-3206 or 817-641-2332. This hotline is also available 24-hours a day, 7 days a week for anyone, anywhere, anytime.

HELP is available. No one should have to live this nightmare... ever!

The Essence of Evil: Sex with Children Has Become Big Business in America | By John W. Whitehead

“This is not a problem found only in big cities.

It’s happening everywhere, right under our noses, in suburbs, cities and towns across the nation. “

Children, young girls—some as young as 9 years old—are being bought and sold for sex in America. The average age for a young woman being sold for sex is now 13 years old. Sex trafficking—especially when it comes to the buying and selling of young girls—has become big business in America, the...

Another victim of family violence murdered. Her ex-boyfriend is charged. Power and control motivates abusers. He no longer had control over her and couldn’t deal with that reality so he took her life.

Domestic violence is happening everywhere. Please, before it’s too late, seek help if you are a victim. You can call 1-800-848-3206 or 1-800-799-SAFE.

Break the cycle.

Days before a Watauga woman was set to compete in her first full Ironman championship, she was found murdered in her home. The suspect was her ex-boyfriend who was then shot by officers.

Domestic violence is happening in all cities, towns and neighborhoods. Two incidents in the metroplex this afternoon alone.

Four found dead in a home in Fort Worth including two children.

AND

"Police in Watauga, Texas shot and killed a man and discovered a deceased woman at a home in the 6500 block of Wooddale Drive, not far from two schools."

PLEASE...if you suspect someone is being abused, let them know there are resources. When a victim decides to leave the situation, that is the most dangerous time. The lady in Watauga had a protective order in place.

The National Domestic Violence Hotline is: 1-800-799-SAFE. The hotline will assist anyone, anywhere at any time. They will patch the victim through to the shelter center in their geographic region or help them find shelter in another safe location.

Infant, toddler alone for days next to parents' bodies after apparent murder-suicide

THIS is Family Violence at its worst! THIS is why we do what we do! THIS is why we provide emergency shelter and FREE counseling!

On average, a woman will leave an abusive relationship seven times before she leaves for good. This statistic is why we continue to take in past clients. Maybe it’s that 3rd, 4th,7th time she leaves that keeps her, her children, her family from living this tragedy.

Authorities said that an infant and toddler were alone for days, next to their parents' bodies after an apparent murder-suicide in Chatsworth.

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month

It only takes one person to make a difference!

Know the facts...

6.3 million Texans have experienced some form of sexual assault in their lifetime

2 in 5 women in Texas have been sexually assaulted

1 in 5 men in Texas has been sexually assaulted

91% of sexual assault victims did not report to law enforcement

90% of all child victims are assaulted by someone they know

Studies confirm the undetected rapist is a serial hunter and serial offender – not the misunderstood drunk guy

Over 94% of rapists roam free with only 3% ever spending a day in jail

Baby dies in womb after father brutally beats pregnant girlfriend, Austin police say

According to the National Institutes of Health, intimate partner violence (IPV), or domestic violence, affects as many as 300,000 pregnant women every year in the U.S. from every age group, religion, ethnicity, socioeconomic level and educational background. And that number is thought to be significantly higher because most incidents of IPV are never reported, according to CDC research. IPV can come from either current or former spouses or boyfriends/girlfriends and doesn’t only include physical abuse, but can also be sexual, psychological or emotional in nature.

Help us help these women and all survivors by supporting your local agency.

After the assault, the woman went to the hospital because she "did not feel the baby move in her stomach for several days," police said.

I Went Back To My Abuser After A Week. This Is Why It's So Hard For Women To Get Out For Good.

“It’s 1 in 4 of us, and that means it’s your friends, your sisters, your accountant, even the woman in the big house on the corner. It’s so frightfully common, yet we don’t talk about it, and we should.

Shrouding abuse in shame and silence protects abusers, and it keeps people from asking for help. My story was embarrassing, and a lifetime later, it’s still embarrassing, but if it helps even one person get out, then I’ll happily scream it from the rooftops.”

We are here to help anyone who is currently in an abusive relationship or who has ever been in one. Our services are completely FREE and confidential.

Our 24-hour hotline is 817-641-2332

On average, a woman tries to leave her partner seven times before she succeeds.

"I was diagnosed with PTSD at 19 after I was raped at gunpoint and I didn't let it stop me. I didn't want it to define my whole life, and it doesn't have to. Asking for help, needing help, doesn't make you weak or less worthy of love or support or success. You can literally be anything you want to be."
