Changing lives and empowering victims of domestic violence.

Domestic violence shatters lives. Last year, Wichita Family Crisis Center provided crucial services for 2,000 survivors in the Wichita area to help them put together the pieces. Domestic violence doesn’t have to be the end of someone’s story.

We provide comprehensive services for victims of domestic violence and sexual exploitation. Our aim is to create safe communities by targeting the issues affecting residents and working to prevent future occurrences. Survivors are never alone.

Today is National #PTSD Awareness Day. Thanks to our friends at the National Network to End Domestic Violence for this helpful information.

Many domestic violence survivors develop PTSD as a result of the abuse they've experienced, and access to trauma-informed care can be an important tool in their healing process. Learn more about what this means: bit.ly/2o28MA8

We received some much needed selfcare thanks to our amazing volunteer, Jessica! Jessica is a licensed massage therapist who helps with indirect projects at both our administrative office and our shelter in her free time. She asked if she could provide massages to our staff as a little treat to say "thanks for all that you do", and what a treat it was!
Jessica said "It is important to take care of and help the helpers.". We are so grateful for you and all that you do for our staff and our clients!

Seeing Jessica's lovely face on my feed made my night! Also : THIS: "Take care of and help the helpers" Jessica is one dynamite of an exquisite human being and meeting her has been yet another blissful thing about serving with WFCC: For all the darkness and terrible heartache this place deals with, it also brings together the most empathetic, kind and emotionally engaged people in doing their shadow work.

Love this amazing lady! Made me so happy to see her in my feed!

Thank you Jessica! That’s so thoughtful, and helpful ❤️

This is an incredible, fabulous woman!!!

What a kind and generous gift.

Like the t-shirt too❤️

Cause fuck men going through this. Typical. Leave your bias and anger out of lending a hand to those in need and stop being shitty human beings.
