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.


Lights! Camera! Texas!
