The Auglaize County Crisis Center provides a network of safety for adult and child victims of domestic violence through 24-hour emergency crisis response, safety planning, shelter and case management. This agency is the only agency in Auglaize County providing shelter, food, case management and programming to survivors of family violence. These life altering programs assist adult and child survivors of domestic violence in strengthening their skills toward independence and self-direction. Each survivor secures a channel of safety through, emergency and transitional shelter (up to 90 days), food, basic needs, case management, legal advocacy, civil protection orders, transportation, financial empowerment education, and non-residential programs with a nine month follow up service. All of the above noted services are free of charge to all served. Additionally, this program provides information and referral, individual and group sessions in domestic violence, dating violence, parenting enrichment, anger management and family crisis management in order to build a foundation toward stabilizing and developing self- sufficiency and independence.
The Crisis Center serves both residential and non-residential survivors of domestic violence, that is, those that require the shelter for safety and those that require services but not shelter. The shelter program provides a 90 day stay with 30-day reviews of goals, both immediate and long term. New goals are established at the end of every 30-day period.
Crisis management is provided by means of a pager response system. This service is provided to families at-risk for violence 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. For emergency 24-hour service Call 911. For non- emergency services call 419-738-5511.
Volunteers help us carry out our mission by providing an array of services including adult and children's activities, fundraising, house maintenance and repairs, transportation and more.
