The Crisis Center in Manhattan provides a safe haven for women and children to remove themselves from abusive situations. College Avenue UMC (CAUMC) has strongly supported the Crisis Center since it opened in 1979. This church was there at the beginning and is still there as the Crisis Center moves into a new home. The Church Council has approved an effort to raise $10,000 to help the Crisis Center furnish and equip the new facility. Members and friends of the church can help by donating to this effort. You may write a check to the church with a note on the memo line saying “Crisis Center.” You may also make a gift online. Please help CAUMC reach this goal and continue our strong support for the Crisis Center.
