The Family Crisis Center in Rexburg helps survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking. The previous executive director, Margie Harris, was the sole employee of the Family Crisis Center back when it was a women’s shelter. She recently retired at the end of May. The new executive director is Meegan Littlefield.
“Her legacy that she has left is really incredible… last week she said she is very confident the Family Crisis Center will continue to thrive because it is not just built on her,” said Chloe Anderson, the public awareness coordinator for the Family Crisis Center.
The Family Crisis Center offers a variety of services to people in Jefferson, Freemont, Madison and Clark Counties and the surrounding areas. Their website states that they will help anyone in need of their services.
Some of the services they provide are a 24-hour crisis line, immediate response, emotional advocacy and follow up support, safe shelter, legal and court advocacy, support groups and counseling.
“We have services that address the physical needs of our clients like our thrift store and our food bank, and then also have advocacy support groups and things like that that address those needs of clients that come into us,” Anderson said.
The food bank and thrift store are available at the Family Crisis Center. The Family Crisis Center is always looking for volunteers. You can sign up to volunteer online at familycrisiscenter.wixsite.com.
