Durham Crisis Response Center

A nonprofit organization

For nearly four decades, Durham Crisis Response Center (DCRC) has been the sole provider of comprehensive shelter and support services to survivors of domestic and sexual violence, and their families, in the Durham area. DCRC’s continuum of service includes a 24-Hour Help Line; emergency shelter; safety planning; crisis intervention; information and referrals for job training, housing, counseling and support groups; legal advocacy; assistance with filing for victim compensation; hospital accompaniment; community education and outreach.  All of DCRC’s services are free, confidential, and available in English and Spanish. DCRC also offers educational workshops and professional training for service providers, law enforcement, hospitals, faith-based organizations, schools, civic groups, and other community members. 


Every day, Durham Crisis Response Center (DCRC) helps those whose lives are torn apart by domestic, sexual, family violence and human trafficking. Our neighbors, friends, and family members - many of them women and children sought and received help from DCRC. They needed someone to listen in a supportive and nonjudgmental way. 

DCRC is here to help, and we do this by offering a place that is safe and secure—free from abuse.  DCRC is a place where victims of domestic and sexual violence and human trafficking can find a safe haven, and with guidance and support, they can find their voice and the strength to rebuild their lives. DCRC is a refuge, a place of safety, hope, and new beginnings.
