FAMILY CRISIS CENTER OF SAN JUAN COUNTY
Established in 1978, Family Crisis Center (FCC) is a 501(c)(3) agency and comprehensive domestic violence service provider, offering a broad range of services geared toward response to the crisis of domestic violence. Services are provided at two facilities including Marge's Place, a protective shelter for victims of domestic violence and their children, and our Counseling Center which provides services and support to victims, child witnesses, and offenders. Incorporating a trauma lens approach allows FCC to address the physical and emotional needs of domestic violence survivors, support the healing and recovery process, and empower survivors to take positive steps toward their own well-being and the well-being of their children.
The agency seeks to take the CRISIS out of families, first by providing basic needs including safety and protection as well as food, clothing, and shelter for victims fleeing domestic violence. Safety plans, healing, and empowerment are critical in their journey towards self-sufficiency. We provide group support and education as well as individual counseling/therapy and case management.
Through the need to provide counseling and support to victims and families, to treat offenders, and provide community awareness and information, FCC has grown to offer a variety of programs. Programs currently include a 24-hour crisis hotline, a walk-in crisis response and assessment intake, transportation services for shelter victims, boarding for shelter victim's pets, life skills and educational groups, Navajo speaking therapists, and community education and outreach.
