The Crisis Center of Comal County was founded in 1986 as the Comal County Women’s Center. Numerous local citizens began a grassroots effort to develop an agency that would address the needs of those experiencing domestic violence. In the beginning the agency consisted of several volunteers who provided information and referral to other service providers in the area. As time passed and grant funding was obtained the agency grew to include several paid staff and an emergency shelter. During those first years many of the agency’s clients also required sexual assault services. As a result, the agency developed a sexual assault crisis services program to serve Comal County.
A capitol campaign fund completed in 1994 funded a six-bedroom full-service emergency shelter. Since that time the staff has grown to 19 and includes 6 shelter staff, 3 licensed counselors, 2 legal advocates, 3 prevention educators and 2 crisis response staff members.
In 2000 the shelter was expanded to 9 bedrooms as well as new office space to provide additional services. As the number of clients increased the agency began to provide more and more services to men. As a result, the agency name was changed to The Crisis Center of Comal County and has been known as a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to bettering our beloved Comal County for the past 34 years.
In April 2022, the Crisis Center of Comal County lost its emergency shelter and residential facility due to a fire. In August 2022, a temporary shelter location was secured in New Braunfels in order to continue to provide mission critical services for victims and survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and families experiencing homelessness. Since then, CCCC has purchased land to build a new permanent facility, which is expected to be ready in 2025. https://www.crisiscenternb.org/
