  • Auto and Cycle Show

    For two decades, the Auto & Cycle Show has been an anticipated East Texas event for thousands of automobile enthusiasts, as well as a premier fundraising event for the East Texas Crisis Center.

    Anyone interested in being a part of the show (displaying a vehicle, purchasing a vendor spot or sponsoring the show) should visit the Auto & Cycle Show website: www.autoandcycleshow.com

    In 2007 the East Texas Crisis Center dedicated the Children's Prevention & Education Wing to Tyler Ford. The wall reads, "Tyler Ford - accelerating children along the road to success"

  • Walk a Mile in Her Shoes

    The East Texas Crisis Center hosted the 1st annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes, the international Men's March to Stop Rape, Sexual Assault and Violence against Women, in 2013.  A Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event is a playful opportunity for men in our community to raise awareness about the serious causes, effects and remediation's to sexualized violence.

    There is an old saying: "You can't really understand another person's experience until you've walked a mile in their shoes." Walk a Mile in Her Shoes ask men to literally walk one mile in women's high heeled shoes. It's not easy walking in these shoes, but its fun and it gets the community to talk about something that is really difficult to talk about: gender relations and sexual violence. It demonstrates that men are willing and able to be courageous partners with women in making the world a safer place.
