August 11, 2010

The Family Crisis Center of Baltimore County offers an emergency safe shelter for families who are experiencing domestic violence and family conflict. At any given point in time, our shelter is made up of about two thirds children (infants through high school age).

As the fall approaches, and the school year begins, the Family Crisis Center is in need of new school clothes for our children residents. All sizes of clothes are needed, in both boys and girls clothes.

School supplies are needed as well.

The Family Crisis Center of Baltimore County celebrated it’s 30th Anniversary at the American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore this June.  Long time supporters of the Family Crisis Center, as well as new donors made their way to the museum to celebrate more than 30 years of assisting Baltimore families who are dealing with domestic violence and family conflict.

The gala’s major sponsors were the People for Rebecca Dongarra for County Council, The Sun Products Corporation, and the Long Green Valley Church of the Brethren.

Executive and Clinical Director, Doug Murphy, thanked the crowd for supporting the Family Crisis Center and presented awards of appreciation to three long term Family Crisis Center supporters: Long Green Valley Church of the Brethren, The Hunt Manor Women’s Club, and the Family Crisis Center’s first Director, Monroe Good.

Guests enjoyed a dinner provided by Dionysus’ Kitchen, music courtesy of Absolute Entertainment, and a silent auction filled with vacation get aways, airfare, wine tastings, and more.

The Family Crisis Center thanks everyone for coming out, and we look forward to next year’s celebration.
