Providing shelter locally

One might ask, ‘’What’s the advantage of having a local family violence crisis center? Isn’t there one in the next county?’’

Let’s make a list, shall we?

  1. No need to drive miles to the next county. Our office is located in Bowie.
  2. Personal attention and on-going support from advocates who make their home in Montague County
  3. Familiarity with much needed resources locally and contact information for those out of our vicinity who are ready to aid in the re-establishment of a non-abusive lifestyle
  4. A cooperative working arrangement with local law enforcement entities and the court system
  5. A local Crisis Hotline that is answered 24-7 by qualified personnel to aid in every situation
  6. Domestic Violence Awareness Month activities to bring about a better, and therefore more compassionate, understanding of the many facets of an abusive relationship.

As part of DVAM (Domestic Violence Awareness Month), Wise Hope Crisis Center of Montague County will host a Candlelight Vigil on Oct. 10, from 6:30-7:30, p.m. to honor those who lost their lives in a domestic dispute.

It will be held at Mary Beckham Davis Park’s Gazebo on Clay Street. The Proclamation will be read, and a survivor will tell of her journey out of her abuse nightmare. Candles will be provided.

For info, phone 940-531-4003, Monday-Thursday, 9-5; or look for us on Facebook: Wise Hope Crisis Center-Montague County.
