New Year, New Beginnings.

The first step in leaving an abusive situation is having a plan.

A Safety Plan is a personalized plan of safety measures for anyone in an abusive relationship or trying to leave an abusive relationship. Safety planning can include physical safety, as well as the safety of children, pets, and even your own emotions.

In Loving Memory of Eddie Bernice Johnson

Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson, our 2022 Texas Trailblazer Awards recipient, left an indelible mark on our community. Her dedication and contributions continue to inspire us as we work towards a safer world for families affected by domestic violence.

May her legacy live on, and may we continue to walk the path she paved with determination, resilience, and compassion. Our hearts go out to her family at this time.

Stopping The Cycle Of Abuse abuse isn’t as easy as “just leaving.” It’s natural if you feel afraid for your safety, the safety of your kids, or the welfare of your pets.

Mary took the chance on herself to leave her abuser and is now continuing her healing journey by attending counseling services, making friends at the shared living facility, and working.

Josie grew up watching her father abuse her mother. Shortly after getting married herself, her husband went into the ministry and began to abuse Josie psychologically and spiritual.

When an advocate from The Family Place spoke at her office, Josie realized she was in a crisis and began to relive the pain and turmoil from her childhood and abusive marriage. Through counseling at The Family Place, she realized her life still had a purpose and she divorced from her husband.

At The Family Place, each survivor enters our shelters with a unique story.

We experienced one survivor that endured abuse from her abuser for over 7 years. As we began to work with her in shelter we realized she had been completely isolated by the abuser - not allowed to work and kept in the house at all times. The survivor spent over 5 years stuck at home, unable to escape the physical, emotional, and mental abuse constantly surrounding her. Due to her isolation, she was unable to maintain friendships and even her family proved to be unsafe. Her family had a close relationship with the abuser and ultimately minimized her abuse and encouraged her to stay with him. When she finally made that brave step and fled to The Family Place, she found herself alone.

Overtime, she gained confidence and blossomed into a woman who voiced her needs and accomplished everything she could. She engaged in psychoeducational group counseling and began to break down the experiences she'd gone through. She took steps to get her GED and applied for scholarship opportunities. She found a steady job and began to support herself for the first time in her life. She went from “I don’t feel I can do this” to “I can’t believe I did this.”

After Hope left her abusive marriage, her son’s behavior changed drastically. His grades started slipping, and his behavior worsened at home and school. Hope called the Family Place after seeing a news story where our counselors assisted a young man having similar issues, and she and her children started coming to one-on-one and group counseling sessions.

Here at The Family Place our mission is to build brighter futures for everyone involved in and because of this, we have services for everyone such as Children's Counseling.

Kimberly Johnson thought her abusive boyfriend would change when they got married, but as soon as she said “I do,” the abuse became even worse. She watched her sons become angry with her husband and knew she had to leave before the abuse started affecting them.

A big thank you to Emberli Brooke Pridham for being a sponsor of Partners Card and supporter of The Family Place!

Without our generous sponsors, we wouldn't have been able to hold this amazing event to provide safety and shelter for survivors of domestic violence.

11/08/2023

In honor of Men's Health Awareness Month, we wanted to highlight The Family Place Men’s Shelter. Our shelter is one of only a few for male survivors of domestic violence in the Southwest.

Research shows that it is significantly more difficult for male victims to leave their abusers due to social expectations, fear of leaving children with their abusers, or feeling the legal system has minimized their abuse claims.

We wanted to have an open conversation with our mens shelter in order to break down some of the barriers and stigma that go along with men in abusive relationships.
