Family Crisis Center Golf Tournament


It's time for our annual Golf Tournament!!!!
This our 29th year and we are excited to get our fundraiser under way!!!

We are currently looking for sponsorships and donations to help support life saving services for victims and survivors of family violence, dating violence, stalking, and sexual assault. The Highland Lakes Family Crisis Center has been providing services in our communities since 1983...............The last few years have seen a decline in direct donor contributions which have forced us to use reserved funds to meet annual operating budget needs. Every dollar donated locally stays local and could help a man, woman, child and entire families who are dealing with the devastating trauma associated with family violence and sexual assault.

Please see our attached flyer for more specific information.....feel free to call Debra at the number listed below to let us know how you can help support us this year.

Your sponsorship and donations go a long way to help us raise funds to continue services to Llano, Burnet, Blanco, and Lampasas counties. Contact Debra Stewart at dlstewart@nctv.com or 830-693-3656!

WE ARE 8 WEEKS FROM HAVING OUR 29TH ANNUAL GOLF TOURNAMENT!!!!!!
Here is a little information about what we do and stats................

We are best known for having the ONLY domestic violence shelter in Burnet County and we are the ONLY domestic violence and rape crisis center serving Burnet, Blanco, Llano and Lampasas counties. Our emergency services are sort of like having a fire department or EMS .............you want to be able to access our help when you or someone you know needs it most!!! That time is usually going to be when you least expect and it's going to be an emergency!!

Our emergency shelter offers 37 beds to any individual or family who is having to flee dangerous, unsafe living environment because they are being verbally, emotionally, sexually or physically abused. Domestic violence and sexual assault can affect ANYONE regardless of socioeconomic background or race or age.

We are just a phone call away!!! Hotline: 830-693-5600 or Toll Free: 1-800-66-HELP-4 We have trained advocates answering the phone 24 hours per day/365 days per year. You will always talk to a "live" person.....no answering machine or service. Calls are a good way to find out how we can best help you and can be anonymous if you wish.

24-hour face-to-face advocate response.......our staff are available ANYTIME day or night including holidays to transport someone or a family to the shelter or to meet to talk!!! We will also go with a victim/survivor to help file a police report, go to the hospital, or go to court.....support is only a call away!!

The emergency services offered by the Highland Lakes Family Crisis Center are life saving. 1 out of 3 women will experience domestic violence at some point in their lives..........1 in 5 women will experience sexual violence at some point in their lives.............60% of rapes are never reported to police.......1 in 33 men will be a victim of sexual assault in their lifetime

Help us help others!!!
Every donation counts and goes a long way towards ensuring our 24 hour emergency services are available whenever someone needs them.
Please consider donating to our agency directly or in connection with our Golf Tournament.
Contact Debra Stewart or Alma Lahmon at 830-693-3656..........someone's life depends on it!!!!!!

WOW......we have been getting some sponsorships and we are so grateful for the response.
Some of our supportive businesses and individuals include--Prosperity Bank of Kingsland, John and Barbara Racz, and Blanco Auto Parts.
Thank you........Thank you ......Thank you!!!!

These sponsorships help us continue life saving emergency services, but it helps with a whole lot more!!

Aside from our agency's emergency services we also offer eduational sessions for area schools!!
Our agency developed a curriculum aimed as stopping violence before it happens. It is an award winning curriculum receiving awards from the Texas Association Against Sexual Assault!
This curriculum focuses on the characteristics of a heathly relationship and challenges teens and middle schoolers to look at how they treat others, how others treat them, empowers them to make a stand against bullying, dating violence, and challenge their peers to do the same. We are currently offering this curriculum in Blanco, Lampasas, Llano and Marble Falls ISD..................we interfaced with over 1500 students last year and have been offering this program since 2006!!! The goal of this prevention project is to stop the cycle of violence and empower others to join us in eliminating violence within our community one relationship at a time.

Help us help others!!! Consider donating, sponsoring and/or playing our golf tournament!
Contact Debra Stewart or Alma Lahmon at 830-693-3656.

Together we can end family violence and sexual assault in our communities!!!!!!!!!
