Our Mission

The Mercer County Family Crisis Center is a nonprofit agency dedicated to breaking the cycle of domestic violence and building a community free of abuse. The mission of the Mercer County Family Crisis Center is to support and respond to the needs of survivors of violence and/or abuse as well as their dependents in an effort to avoid further abuse.

Our Philosophy

The Family Crisis Center provides a safe, violent-free, supportive environment for victims of abuse and crime. The Family Crisis Center’s staff advocates support victims of violence in making their own decisions and choices, rather than making choices for them.
