Raise money for The Family Place
In 1978 a group of community volunteers organized The Family Place as one of the first family violence shelters in the state. Today The Family Place is the largest family violence service provider in Texas, with three emergency shelters providing 177 shelter beds each night, including the state’s only shelter for men and children. We served 11,711 clients with 185,291 hours of service last year alone. Over the past 42 years, we have counseled more than 218,500 clients, provided lifesaving shelter to more than 26,600 women, men and children, and answered more than 620,000 calls for help. We have helped more than 19,600 batterers learn how to change their abusive behavior and reach approximately 7,000 students each year through our youth education programs. All of our programs are provided in Spanish and in English.
