Advocates-Crisis Support Services would like to take this opportunity to thank Neil Folks and Vicki Burns from the Moffat County Fuller Center for Housing for including our organization in their recent project. Bike riders from the Fuller Center Bike Adventure spent many hours painting our office and shelter a few weeks ago All of the bike riders were hard workers and very dedicated and enthusiastic. In addition to painting, they also mowed a huge lawn, pulled weeds and did various other projects. We would also like to thank the The Journey Church and especially John Kinkaid who arranged for a Project One group to come to our shelter and do scraping and other paint prep work a few months ago. Our facility look better than it has in years. Advocates would like to take this time to thank the Fuller House and The Journey for their support and help and also to remind the community of the many services we offer to victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and other crimes, trauma and loss.

In addition to a 24-hour crisis hotline, we offer many other services, including but not limited to, crisis intervention, safe shelter, judicial advocacy and resource referrals. We offer assistance through specialized programs to accommodate children and families, teens, men and boys and non-English speaking clients. Community outreach, education, collaboration and information/referral assure that we are meeting the needs of our clients and their families within Craig and Moffat County. Because we are a nonprofit and supported by federal and state programs, local governments, businesses and partners, all of our services are offered at no cost to victims and survivors.

If you or anyone you know is in need of our help, we are here to listen. All of our services are confidential and free of charge. If you are interested in volunteering for our organization (as an on-call Advocate, an office helper, or maintenance person), we can be reached at 970-824-9709 or the 24-hour crisis line at 970-824-2400.
