The Thumb Area Assault Crisis Center provides a safe, supportive environment for survivors of domestic violence or sexual assault and their children.  We believe that every person has the right to a life that is free from violence and the fear that results.  It is our goal to provide services that will help survivors of domestic violence or sexual assault, their families, and communities to understand and overcome the effects of such violence.   


Domestic violence and sexual assault are not private problems.  The effects are devastating and far reaching.  We believe that awareness is the first step in ending violence, and reaching out for support is the next step. 

Help is available. All Services are confidential.  Please call for assistance or just to talk with someone who understands at 1-800-292-3666
