The Crisis Shelter of Lawrence County is a comprehensive non-profit that assists the community in several different ways. This progressive shelter is innovative in reaching the community by various programs such as "Believe Me When I Tell". This highly visible program helped generate awareness for all ages regarding sexual assault/abuse of children. The Crisis Shelter not only has several programs; it also reaches various geographical areas. Some of these services can be found on-line with individuals ready to help through a "chat" type of system at all times. These "chats" will give information to individuals that are potential victims. The progression through technology, counseling services and education to all ages and gender lines makes this program invaluable to the community.

The Shelter's services are much more comprehensive than what one would expect at first glance. Not only does the Shelter staff assist victims of domestic violence, they also work to end the cyle of violence for all people, regardless of age or gender. To name just a few tough issues that the Shelter addresses: bullying in the schools, sexting among teens and children, elder abuse, special concerns regarding domestic violence in the LGBT community, specific issues involved with rural violence, sexual abuse of children, acquaintance rape and stranger rape, stalking. Lawrence County is fortunate to have a progressive, all-encompassing Shelter that is dedicated to ending the cycle of violence and staying on top of difficult issues that arise in our community. And the Shelter is fortunate to have caring community members such as the District Attorney's office and the Fraternal Order of Police. When we all come together, we are sure to make a difference!
