The Family Violence Center is dedicated to breaking the cycle of violence by assisting victims of domestic and sexual violence through crisis intervention, long-term support services, and through community violence and awareness prevention education.
The hope for a better life and the courage to take the first step must come from within, but NAM’s Family Violence Center (FVC) provides the resources to help clients find safe places, and offers support and the services to begin again on new paths.
The FVC offers a variety of services to victims/survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault, including 24-hour hotline, telephone crisis counseling, access to emergency shelter, emergency food, clothing, transportation, medical assistance, professional counseling services for adults and their children, community outreach, information and referrals for battering intervention programs, as well as community and legal referrals.
When fleeing an abusive home, individuals often leave everything behind to enter a world of financial and emotional upheaval. NAM’s multiple social service programs meet their basic needs while they work through the physical and emotional trauma they have experienced. Caring volunteer Peer Advocates provide support to clients as they recover their strength and self-esteem, and begin the daunting task of moving toward self-reliance.
The FVC continues to offer innovative programming to meet the needs of our clients. Play Therapy and Art Therapy services are a part of our support services directed toward children and adolescents. As the needs of our clients continue to grow, support from our community allows the FVC to grow and meet those needs.
In partnership with the Houston Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA), the FVC helps assure the safety of all household pets through the PetSafe Project. With a referral from a family violence shelter or program, the SPCA will keep families’ pets, free of charge, while family members at risk seek safe refuge.
Domestic violence cuts across all social, economic and educational lines. It affects all ages, ethnic groups and genders. Domestic violence has been identified as the number one reason for homelessness among women. Community education is an important tool in making our homes safer for all. NAM’s FVC provides a Speakers’ Bureau, teen dating seminars and evening domestic violence education meetings for English- and Spanish-speaking groups.
