The Crisis Center of Anderson & Cherokee Counties is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides essential services to victims and families impacted by family violence, sexual assault and child abuse. The Center was founded by Jacksonville Service League members who, in the late 1980s, noticed a need for community-driven support for family violence victims.
The original founding members began seeking permits in December 1988 and by March of 1989, they were funded and approved to operate in Cherokee County. In 1994 operations expanded into Anderson County and in 1997 the center added the Children’s Advocacy Center (CAC) program under its umbrella.
In 33 years, the center has expanded operations to help men, women, children, and families who are suffering to find hope, justice and healing by providing the necessary resources and support they need to recover from sexual abuse and family violence.
To educate, encourage, and empower victims of family violence, sexual assault, and child abuse by providing essential services, advocacy, and professional support to promote hope and healing.
The Crisis Center of Anderson & Cherokee Counties strives to create a world that is free of family and sexual violence and no longer requires victim services.
