Summertime can bring about fun for many families in the area; however, for those families experiencing domestic violence, this time of year can mean making the life-changing decision to leave a violent home. Shelter and crisis services typically increase during the summer, and this places a strain on agency resources. Please consider donating items from the current needs list to help the agency serve individuals in need.

About Us

The Bastrop County Women’s Shelter, dba Family Crisis Center started in 1981 from a coalition of rural Texas women with a shared vision of offering hope, support, and assistance to women victimized by domestic violence. Since becoming an incorporated nonprofit in 1983, the Center has evolved into a community leader in rural Central Texas. The Center recently celebrated 25 years of service offering victims of domestic and sexual violence safety, shelter, and advocacy; a milestone made possible by the enduring commitment of the Center’s clients, staff members, volunteers, donors, and community partners, both organizations and individuals.

History of the Family Crisis Center
