Community Crisis Center, Inc.

Organized by volunteers in 1975 to meet the needs of individuals and families in crisis, the Community Crisis Center has evolved into a professional multi-service agency providing comprehensive emergency services to individuals and families dealing with the trauma of domestic violence, sexual assault, homelessness and other life crises. Services include a 24-hour hotline; information & referral; fully accessible emergency shelter for 40 women and children; transitional housing; individual and group counseling; legal, medical and welfare advocacy; financial assistance; a batterers' intervention program; and community education. Each year nearly 5,000 individuals receive 40,000 hours of service; the agency has 65 employees. Services are available to victims at no cost. Individuals seeking assessment for and participation in the Abuse' Intervention Program pay fees based on income levels.

Community Crisis Center, Inc. reaches several target populations with direct services: people who are victims of domestic violence or sexual assault, those who perpetrate domestic violence, those who are homeless, and those who are economically disadvantaged. The agency's community education program focuses on reaching broader audiences, including the general public, schools, faith-based and civic groups and professional colleagues in an effort to share information about available services and to educate people about the realities of domestic violence and sexual violence in today's society. The Community Crisis Center is "always home," with a 24-hour hotline staffed by professional case managers who receive thousands of calls each year, ranging from general information and referral requests to crisis and suicide calls. Because someone is "always home," women and children in need of a safe refuge from violence or homelessness can receive intake any time, day or night. The Community Crisis Center's primary service area includes Northern Kane and Northwest Suburban Cook Counties in Illinois, but victims of domestic violence are accepted from any location.

Primary program areas and accompanying services are:

Domestic Violence Program: services include a 24-hour crisis intervention hotline, emergency shelter for women and children; legal, medical and welfare advocacy; individual and group counseling; and information and resources.

Abuse Intervention Program: provides off-site individual assessments and group counseling to those who have been abusive to intimate partners or family members. Divisions of this program are: Partner Abuse Intervention, Abuse Intervention, Caring Dads, and Love & Logic Parenting Group.

Sexual Assault Program: services include a 24-hour crisis intervention hotline, short-term individual counseling, medical and legal advocacy and support groups for survivors, significant others and teens.

Economic Crisis Program: services include emergency shelter for women and children, individual counseling and case management, emergency food pantry and clothing referrals, and rent and utility assistance for those meeting eligibility requirements.

Children's Program: services include emergency shelter with their mothers; education, medical and welfare advocacy; individual counseling, children's groups, parenting groups; and, for shelter residents, access to a playroom and computer lab for play therapy, free play, guided play and homework help.
