The Family Place provides over 150,000 service hours each year, shelters over 1,000 women, children and men, and provides transitional housing to nearly 200 women and children. When families are in the care of The Family Place, they strive to meet all of their needs – housing, food, medicine, education, just to name the major ones. Through intervention, emergency shelter, and crisis counseling for all victims—women, children and men— The Family Place saves lives and through transitional housing and case management, The Family Place transforms lives for the better. I am currently a Board Member of The Family Place, and have been for five years. The dedication and perseverance of Paige Flink, the Executive Director, and the entire staff of The Family Place to make a difference in the lives of our citizens is extraordinary. They are exemplary stewards of the resources they obtain, providing comprehensive, quality services to remarkable numbers of people.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I've heard many clients talk about how their lives and the lives of their children were first saved, and then changed forever for the better. I have seen the children smiling and playing instead of being trapped in a terrorizing situation.

The Family Place provides a multitude of services that help people who are victims of domestic violence. When a person comes to The Family Place, that individual can expect to be treated with respect and kindness. The Family Place goes beyond providing short-term and long-term shelter. The Family Place works to break the cycle of violence, helps victims with legal issues, and helps survivors emerge back into the community. In the most simplistic terms, The Family Place saves lives.

As a new board member, I continue to be impressed by the services provided by The Family Place. This organization helps thousands of women and children escape from domestic violence and begin to build a new life. During our board initiation, we heard from a young woman that had totally turned her life around. She gained new confidence, obtained a college degree and put herself and children on a positive path. This young woman was quite articulate and impressive. Through TFP program, she has learned that the domestic violence she has experienced and witnessed in her family for generations, is not acceptable and that there are ways to address issues without violence.
