Our mission is to provide crisis and prevention services to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault while providing a safe environment where an individual can make educated, non-biased decisions about their future.
In 2000 the shelter was expanded to 9 bedrooms as well as new office space to provide additional services. As the number of clients increased the agency began to provide more and more services to men. As a result the agency name was changed to The Crisis Center of Comal County, and has been known as a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to bettering our beloved Comal County for the past 34 years.
Our Crisis Hotline is here for you 24 hours a day.
24/7 on call crisis responder, 24-hour crisis hotline staffed by trained advocates, advocates respond to clients in crisis to provide support and referrals, advocates accompany clients to medical, legal, or criminal service providers.
Crisis Hotline: 1-800-434-8013.
The mission of the Comal Thrift Shoppe is to provide affordable high-quality clothing, jewelry, housewares, furniture, and more to Comal and surrounding counties so that we may better serve survivors of domestic and sexual violence as well as women and children experiencing houselessness.
Thanks to a surplus of donations from our wonderful community, the Crisis Center of Comal County is thrilled to announce the launch of the Comal Thrift Shoppe, opened September 16th, 2021. Once they arrive, our clients go through and choose everything they may need from our collection of item donations. Then, our staff and volunteers sort through each piece to curate a high-end collection to be housed at the Comal Thrift Shoppe. People are then free to shop the pieces at their leisure and can take pride in knowing that the proceeds from their purchases directly fund our programs and services.
