Helping You To Survive.

If you’re feeling frightened about what comes next, don’t be. Embrace the uncertainty. Allow it to lead you places. Be brave as it challenges you to exercise both your heart and your mind as you create your own path towards happiness, don’t waste time with regret. Spin wildly into your next action. 

Enjoy the present, each moment, as it comes; because you’ll never get another one quite like it. And if you should ever look up and find yourself lost, simply take a breath and start over. Retrace your steps and go back to the purest place in your heart.. where your hope lives. You’ll find you’re way again.

The FCIC cares about you, cares for you, comforts you, gives you shelter, clothing and the life you long for, and we're just a phone call away. Our 24 hour hot line: 1.800.794.2335 or 1.304.428.2333.

OUR FCIC KIDS FIRST PROGRAM


A Child Exchange and Monitored Visitation Center is under the direction of the Family Crisis Intervention Center, a licensed domestic violence program. The Visitation Centers are annually certified through the State of West Virginia Family Protection Services Board for Monitored Parenting and Exchange Programs. The Kids First Program operates in Jackson, Ritchie, Roane, and Wood counties.

The Kids First Programs provide families a child-focused and friendly environment, where children can be free from tensions and stresses that may be part of exchanges and visitations, by eliminating contact between parents during exchanges and visitations.

"In my darkest hour both broken and bruised I didn't know how I would cope or heal. I found a place of hope and encouragement, and I found it within the walls of the FCIC. It was there I recovered and gained strength, and they gave me the greatest gift of all...a helping hand at obtaining my independence and freedom. May god bless this wonderful haven, and those who reside and work within it."

~Celena Roby, Author of Celena's Law 



It is clear that the way to heal society of its violence... and lack of love is to replace the pyramid of domination with the circle of equality and respect.
