Today I blog not about crafts or recycled projects which is the normal topic here at My Recycled Bags but rather to stop abuse. I want to feature a local organization called Family Crisis Network who shortly will be known as Pend Oreille Crime Victim Services. This organization proudly works in the area the Newport, Washington area to prevent and advocate in matters of domestic violence, child abuse, sexual assault, and homelessness. They provide services for victims of all crimes in Pend Oreille County. Their web site is presented as an educational resource by the Family Crisis Center. If you are seeking help for yourself or someone you care about, call their 24 Hour Crisis line at (509) 447-5483 or 1-800-548-3133. If you live outside Pend Oreille County, Washington and are in crisis, call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE (7233).
Mission is to provide services to all persons who have been abused and to promote a safe environment from domestic violence, sexual assault, and for the homeless.
Trained volunteers and staff are on call 24 hours a day, every day, to assist victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. Medical and Legal Advocacy is available if the victim of a sexual assault so desires.
