On November 5, 1981, the Odessa Rape Crisis Center was incorporated. Forty years later, the Odessa Rape Crisis Center, now Crisis Center of West Texas, continues to support survivors in need. After four decades, three names, three shelters, thousands of clients, and countless community supporters, the vision to end violence and serve those in need remains unchanged.

With your help, the Crisis Center of West Texas team will continue to respond, shelter, and educate to end domestic and sexual violence in West Texas. We anxiously await the day when domestic violence and sexual assault are a part of our history, not our everyday lives.

In honor of this milestone, join us for 40 Days of Giving! Every day through December 25th, we’ll share a different way you can give back to support survivors. You can pick one or even do all 40 - each way helps us continue to serve survivors for years to come.
