About Jeanne Geiger Crisis Center
Our mission is to empower individuals and engage communities to end domestic violence.
- free, comprehensive services that support adult and child survivors healing from the trauma of domestic abuse;
- programs in the schools that promote positive gender norms, teach skills for healthy relationships, and counter social patterns of
violence that begin early in life;
- tools and strategies to reduce domestic violence homicides.
Our team is comprised of 32 staff members who use evidence-based approaches to meet the complex needs of families in crisis due to domestic violence. While we all have different roles—from administration to fundraising, advocates to attorneys, educators to program facilitators—we all share a common goal. We are dedicated to ending domestic violence and providing care for survivors and their families.
