Agency Profile: Crisis Center
The Crisis Center was founded in 1970 and became an agency of the United Way of Central Alabama in 1973. We have three branches through which we provide care: Crisis Intervention & Prevention, Sexual Assault Support Services and Mental Health Services. We believe that delivering compassionate care means we that we give unconditional positive regard to each and every individual we encounter.
