Our Mission is to eliminate Family Violence and Sexual Violence in Calvert County. We strive to achieve this through counseling, advocacy, sheltering, increasing community awareness and changing social attitudes. The Crisis Intervention Center believes it is the right of every human being to live free of the fear of abuse and violence.
“Crisis Intervention Center changed my life for the better. I was in an abusive marriage for years; physically, mentally and emotionally, I was torn. When I came to the Crisis Intervention Center I met wonderful, good hearted, kind people just like me, who have also been involved in similar relationships. I got a chance to talk and cry and, most importantly, I learned to establish healthy boundaries. Today, I am grateful to have had the opportunity to attend group.
Today, I am out of the abusive marriage, living a productive life with my three children; whom I might add are doing well. My oldest is in his fourth year of pre-med, my second will be entering the Air Force, and my baby, who is seventeen, is in college. As for me, I am a business owner. Thank you, Crisis Intervention Center, for your patience and your attentiveness to my needs. May God bless you as much as you have blessed others.”
“I have learned, through the domestic violence group counseling, to take control over my life.”
