The Henderson County operation was established in 1992 with a one small office courtesy of the Henderson County Government.  After years of operation in this county and with the generosity of the Ginger Murchison Foundation and the Cain Foundation, our outreach office owns a fully functional office which will better serve victims of family violence and sexual assault in this area.  The facility was officiated on August 21, 2008.

Throughout the year 2021,  we provided counseling and advocacy to 171 victims of family violence and sexual assault.  2022 marks the 30th year, the East Texas Crisis Center has been serving the community in Henderson County and its surroundings.

The East Texas Crisis Center in Henderson County is supported by group of volunteers who are dedicated to the mission of the agency providing solutions to victims served in the county.
