The Mission of The Christian County Family Crisis Center and Freedom’s Rest is to provide shelter and advocacy to the survivors of domestic violence and to promote education to break the cycle of violence.

One in four women is a victim of domestic abuse. And it’s not just women who suffer. Children witness and are often also victims of violence.

It’s not just a place to stay – it’s a place to heal and begin to rebuild a new life.
