Get Help

Emergency Shelter is short term (3-5 day) housing to allow clients and their children the time and resources they need to address what has happened to them and how they can move forward. Our dormitory style housing allows families to stay together. They are provided with clothing, food, hygiene products, and other necessities, as needed.
Known as Transitional Housing (TH), extended stay shelter is temporary, secure housing that supports clients, and their children, as they begin their recovery from trauma and prepare to transition back into the community. In addition to safe housing, meals, and basic needs, TH provides important supportive services to help clients get back on their feet including case management, financial coaching, housing assistance, employment assistance, children’s services, life skills training, and referrals for other community assistance.
FSC provides free, confidential evidence-based, trauma-focused counseling for survivors and their children (if desired) during their healing process to help move beyond the violence and trauma to hope and healing.
FSC Case Management services provide survivors one on one help to identify and achieve their personal goals. These services are dependent upon the needs of the individual survivor, and may include: crisis intervention, violence assessment, safety planning, life skills, housing assistance, job skills training and employment assistance, financial literacy, legal and court advocacy, and help navigating community resources.
Our advocates can help you create an individualized plan to lower your risk of being hurt by your partner. The plan will outline ways you can remain safe while still in the relationship, planning to leave, or after you leave.
FSC recognizes that your situation is unique, and we strive to find the information and resources that you need. We work with you to understand what you are most concerned about right now and help provide access to the state and local resources available.

Call our 24-hour Crisis Resource Line at 334-263-0218 (collect calls accepted)

If you are in immediate danger, call 911. Local police officers and sheriff’s deputies can help you reach safe shelter.

The decision to reach out is the first step in seeking help with domestic violence, sexual assault, or human trafficking. Our 24/7 crisis resource line is a safe way to break the barriers of silence and isolation often experienced after trauma. Calls are answered 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, by a Family Sunshine Center crisis advocate ready to help: providing confidential, non-judgmental support. They will talk with you about your safety, provide information on resources in your community, and connect you to needed programs and services. The call is completely free of charge, and you can provide as much, or as little, information about yourself as you like — you can even call anonymously. Whether you are prepared to leave or not, our services are available to you.
