Statistics on Domestic Violence Deaths In Maryland

June 29, 2010

The Maryland Network Against Domestic Violence (MNADV) released a report on individuals who died as a result of domestic violence during FY 2009 in Maryland.  The report gives us information on who the victims were, their relationship to the offender, their age range, how they were killed, and where in Maryland this took place.

Baltimore County had the highest number of deaths as a result of domestic violence, with 12. Baltimore City had 10 deaths, and Price George’s County had 8.

These deaths grimly reveal the challenge that the Family Crisis Center of Baltimore County and other domestic violence agencies face as they attempt, with diminished funding and growing demand for services, in our efforts to intervene and provide safety for the families of Baltimore County.

Dundalk Church of the Brethren Donates Christmas Offering to FCC

February 1, 2010

If you know the history of the Family Crisis Center of Baltimore County, you already know that the organization was originally started 30 years ago through the Dundalk Church of the Brethren. In 1991 those involved decided that the Family Crisis Center had grown to a level beyond the Church’s ability to govern, and the Family Crisis Center was incorporated into a private, non-profit organization.

Over the years, the Dundalk Church of the Brethren has continued to support the Family Crisis Center in many different ways.

Today, the Family Crisis Center received a very generous donation from the Dundalk Church of the Brethren’s Christmas offering. Delores Barr, Chair of the Leadership Team at the Church, and 40-year member, told us:

One of the reasons we chose the agency is because of it’s response and outreach to the community in times of difficulty.

We wanted to thank the Family Crisis Center because it really provides an important service to those who are in desperate situations.

The Family Crisis Center thanks the Dundalk Church of the Brethren, it’s Leadership Team, and it’s members for their continued support.
