Education is the key to how we grow as individuals and how we flourish as a community.  At the Family Crisis Center of East Texas, we strive to educate the community about the struggles that women, children and men experience when they fall victim to family violence and/or sexual assault.  We have advocates available 24 hours a day for personal support and many more who take their advocacy to college campuses, hospitals and community events to promote the need for social change and awareness of such crises.

Prevention and educational workshops and trainings are provided upon request to college groups, businesses, service clubs, community groups, and organizations.

Sample topics include:
