The Safe-T Crisis Center of Sulphur Springs’ Outreach plans a Candlelight Vigil on Tuesday October 16, 2018 at 6:30pm in The ROC,
at 115 Putman Street. The event was previously planned to be conducted at Celebration Plaza. The purpose of the Vigil is to honor the silent voices and those who have lost their lives to domestic violence. Speakers will include Hopkins County Attorney Dusty Hyde Rabe, and domestic violence survivor Gala Lawrence. In case of rain, an alternate location will be The Roc at 115 Putman Street.
Ragan Dennis, Outreach Coordinator for Safe-T Crisis Center reminds us that October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and encourages everyone to attend the Vigil. Domestic violence affects people of every age, gender and nationality. The Safe-T Crisis Center is a non-profit organization serving eight NE Texas counties, offering assistance to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. The Sulphur Springs Crisis Center is located at 613 Gilmer Street, inside the CANHelp office complex. The Safe-T Crisis Headquarters and Shelter in Mt. Pleasant was established there in 1995. Persons who wish to report domestic violence/sexual assault at a Safe-T location can expect confidentiality and capable, caring representatives. You can reach Safe-T by phone at 903-439-0325.
