BARTLESVILLE, Okla. — With no warning, the Family Crisis and Counseling Center in Bartlesville shut down days before Christmas.

A spokesperson for the Attorney General's Office, which helps fund the center, said it doesn't know the cause of the sudden closure on December 20.

The center provided different types of services to victims of domestic abuse, such as legal aid on filing protective orders, support groups and case management services.

Several agencies have stepped up to help victims and avoid any delays in the legal process. These include the Bartlesville Police Department, Washington County Courthouse, Ray of Hope and Delaware Tribe of Indians.

The future of the center is unknown, but for the meantime, victims of domestic violence or sexual assault are asked to seek help with one of the above agencies or call the state hotline 1-800-522-SAFE (7233).
