The Gretchen S. Vapnar Community Crisis Center was founded in 1975 to meet the needs of individuals and families in crisis. Employees provide comprehensive services to individuals and families suffering due to domestic violence, sexual assault, or economic difficulties. The mission of the Community Crisis Center is to provide Safety, Hope, Advocacy, Respite, and Education for those impacted by crisis and violence in Illinois.
