Families in Crisis, Inc.
Families In Crisis, Inc. (FIC) was established in 1980 to assist and empower victims of family violence and sexual assault in Bell, Coryell, and Hamilton counties in Texas, including Fort Hood, the largest U.S. military installation. What started as a grassroots effort by volunteers has since evolved into a multi-program, comprehensive social service organization that continues to serve survivors of family/sexual violence as well as veterans and their families and the homeless and at-risk for homelessness populations. Services include: emergency safe shelter for survivors of family/sexual violence; transitional and permanent housing assistance; crisis intervention counseling; case management; 24-hour hotline; hospital accompaniment; provision of food, clothing, personal care items, and household items; support groups; life skills classes, and information and referral. FIC’s services, which are confidential and free of charge, promote stabilization and self-sufficiency through a goal-oriented approach, helping clients become more effective as individuals, as parents, and as citizens.
