The 2nd Annual “Turning our Town Purple” Month of October

October is National Domestic Violence Awareness month; Family Crisis Center Inc. is asking our community to join us in raising awareness by “Turning our Town Purple”.  October is the month we all come together, as a community, throughout this nation to work towards ending domestic violence. A month to remember those who have suffered and died from domestic violence, and celebrate the work being done to end violence. 

The Family Crisis Center, Inc.’s Domestic and Sexual Violence Center, provides advocacy and support to all survivors and secondary victims of domestic and sexual violence, while encouraging social change through awareness, education and prevention. From our 24-hour crisis hotline to supportive services to professional training, we offer hope and healing for families experiencing domestic and sexual violence. Services for the Domestic and Sexual Violence Center provided in Barton, Barber, Comanche, Edwards, Kiowa, Ness, Pawnee, Pratt, Rush & Stafford counties.

Join us; Take a Stand; Say “NO MORE”; Wear purple ribbons; Tie a purple ribbon to your antenna or around the big oak tree; Wear your favorite purple outfit or shirt.  Purple is the color used to raise awareness to the issues faced by battered women, men and their children.  We are “Turning our Town Purple” in honor of all who have survived, those that continue to fight, and in memory of those that have lost their life to domestic violence.

Show us your support. Find and like us on Facebook at  and post a picture of you “Turning our Town Purple”, or e-mail us your picture at We all have a responsibility. If one is not safe, no one is safe.
