WHAT WE OFFER
The Family Sunshine Center has been serving victims and survivors of family violence for over 35 years in Autauga, Butler, Chilton, Crenshaw, Elmore, Lowndes and Montgomery counties, while also providing sexual assault counseling in Dallas, Perry, and Wilcox counties. Since 1981, we have grown to incorporate services not only to victims with immediate crisis needs but also those ready to move out of emergency shelter and into self-sufficient lifestyles. We also provide a non-residential counseling center and a community outreach program for prevention education. Most recently, we have added sexual assault counseling to the services we offer.
Our staff works diligently to raise awareness about domestic violence and sexual assault and the services that are available to victims. We strive to ensure a network and positive communications among law enforcement, legal services, the court system and other agencies a victim might encounter while exiting the cycle of violence.
If someone you love is hurting you or threatening to hurt you, your children or other family members, you could be a victim of domestic violence and/or sexual assault. The Family Sunshine Center can help! Consider the following options:
