2018 FamilyTime Purple Ribbon Event
FamilyTime’s annual Purple Ribbon Lunch recognizes domestic violence awareness month (October) and women of achievement 1990 – 2017. Hosted at Walden on Lake Houston’s Golf & Country Club, this year’s luncheon was a great success thanks to sponsors and friends! Judge Lincoln Goodwin shared an especially moving and personal story showing how domestic violence affects us all but can—and often is—overcame with a strong support system. FamilyTime Crisis and Counseling Center is an exceptionally worthy charitable organization that provides the support system services people in crisis need.
“In 2016 FamilyTime provided shelter to 717 victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and human trafficking. Women, children and men were provided a safe haven with a warm bed, three meals a day, clothing and resources to begin a new life. Still, in 2016, FamilyTime had to turn away 1,242 people in crisis due to lack of space.”
Currently, land for a new shelter has been acquired and a capital campaign is underway. The goal is to increase beds from 33 to 75, square feet from 10,00 to 30,000+, acreage from < 1 to 3-5 acres with an annual budget increase needed from 1.82M to 2.5M.

Much Needed rooms and beds for our clients
