Our budget for 2021, like all shelters in South Dakota, experienced a large cut from the federal Victims of Crime Act (VOCA). We are working to fill that 25% shortfall with a supplemental grant and additional fundraising from the community.
We need your help!
Our fiscal year 2022 that started July 1, is short $18,000. We need to raise these funds in order to continue serving the community. Please donate to help us help others.
Your donation is greatly appreciated and fully tax-deductible as The Family Crisis Center is a 501c3.
Become A Guardian Angel
How the Program Works
A guardian angel is often seen as a protective and nurturing figure, assigned to guide and protect someone as they journey through life. The Guardian Angel program is a one-year commitment. During that year, each Guardian Angel will be called upon to donate $100 to provide an emergency need for a domestic violence victim from Family Crisis Center. The Guardian Angel provides $100 to put toward an emergency need within five days of the call. All donations are tax-deductible and provide great relief and hope to victims in their time of need.
