Drawing of many hands of different races reaching togetherFamily Crisis Services of Northwest Mississippi, Inc. was founded in 1992 as a victim service organization providing intervention services to individuals, but since that time our services have expanded to include family support services and prevention education, specifically, parenting education, healthy marriage, teen pregnancy prevention (abstinence-based), and responsible fatherhood because so much of the violence that we were intervening with started within the home. Family Crisis Services believes that addressing the issues that lead to violent behaviors at their source – within the family – is the most powerful deterrent available to the development of destructive behaviors. Family Crisis Services developed the Lafayette County Families First Resource Center program in the fall of 2000 providing the above mentioned family support services.


Our mission is to assist and support victims of violent crime, and to strengthen and stabilize families.
