About The East Texas Crisis Center

From small beginnings as an all-volunteer agency...

Incorporated in 1978 as the Smith County Citizens Against Rape, the East Texas Crisis Center has become a haven for thousands of victims of family violence, sexual assault and violent crime.

Within the core services to victims in five counties, programs are reaching underserved populations in rural areas as well as racial and Spanish-speaking minorities. Programs emphasize both prevention and intervention.

With help from wonderful supporters throughout the community, the East Texas Crisis Center has provided shelter, crisis counseling and education for victims of family violence and sexual assault since 1978.

Abuse of any kind, particularly family violence and sexual abuse, is not something people are comfortable talking about. But, in order for women and children to receive intervention, there must be advocacy available in the community.

By sponsoring, exhibiting, or attending the East Texas Auto & Cycle Show, you are helping us accomplish our vital mission. Thank you for your compassion, dedication, friendship and all you do to help us offer assistance to those who need it most.
