Who We Are















Family ties should not leave scars, but in millions of American families, women and children are killed or injured every year. Each day, at least three children die of abuse or neglect. Domestic Violence is the number one killer of women. Fortunately, prevention and intervention are possible.

Montgomery Area Family Violence Program, Inc., dba. Family Sunshine Center, exists to end family violence and sexual assault and foster hope and healing in seven Alabama counties: Autauga, Butler, Chilton, Crenshaw, Elmore, Lowndes, and Montgomery. One of our strategies is to provide life-saving information via this website.
