Since 1972, 1736 Family Crisis Center has provided shelter and comprehensive supportive services, including 24-hour emergency and transitional shelter care, case management, employment, legal services, and counseling, to help individuals and families achieve safety, stability, and self-sufficiency—free of charge. Our programs and services are more important than ever as we face the COVID-19 pandemic, and we are committed to keeping our doors open and providing the essential, comprehensive services we always have in a way that is safe for both our clients and our staff.
To safely provide services requires a greater amount of resources for cleaning supplies, janitorial services, staffing, personal protective equipment, transportation, and technology than our current program implementation and funding allow.
During this critical time, we need your support more than ever.
