Adams Wells Crisis Center

Broken Hearts….Broken Homes





The purple ribbon has become a symbol of peace, support for those who have survived the violence, commemoration of those who have not been so fortunate, and hope that together, we can work to end this violence which claims thousands of lives each year.

For Information Call:






AWCC is a place of safety for women (age 18 and over) and their minor children who are seeking to escape a domestic violence situation.  We strongly believe that every client deserves a peaceful, violence-free life; each child is to be respected and is the link to ending violence in the next generation; that where there is diversity, there is hope; where there is pain, there is healing; where there is crisis, there is opportunity; and where there is caring, there is renewal.

Please take a few minutes to review our history and programs in more detail.  Family violence is occuring at an increasing rate in our communities.  Adams Wells Crisis Center is committed to the mission of creating hope in the hearts of victims of domestic violence by providing the tools and services needed to secure their safety and independence.

Family violence is occurring at an increasingly rate in our communities.

  The Adams Wells Crisis Center was established in 1997 to provide comprehensive residential services including:  temporary shelter and meals, 24 hour crisis intervention, case management services, and emergency essential transportation for victims of family violence (women, age 18 and over) and their minor children (under age 18). It is our goal to create hope in the hearts of victims of domestic violence and to provide the tools they need to secure their independence.


  Domestic violence and abuse does not discriminate.  It occurs within all age ranges, ethnic backgrounds, and economic levels.  And while women are more commonly

victimized, men are also abused-especially verbally and emotionally.  The bottom line is that

abusive behavior is never acceptable, whether it’s coming from a man, a woman, a

teen-ager, or an older adult.  We all deserve to feel valued, respected and safe.


AWWC is a safe place where women and children can begin again.
