History of Eastland County Crisis Center

• In 1994, Former Chief of Police Cecil Funderburgh and concerned citizens met at Eastland National Bank believing that there was a need for an organization to assist Law Enforcement and Hospital Personnel with victims of violent crimes.


• In 1996, Eastland County Crisis Center opened its doors for the first time.


• County Commissioners generously donated office space at the old Annex Building and also agreed to pay all utilities.


• In 2009, The Eastland County Children’s Advocacy Program opened to provide additional services specifically designed for abused and neglected children and their non-offending family members.

What about my privacy?

This is a small community. All CVAC staff, volunteers, and clients sign a strict confidentiality policy. This prohibits discussing the client, case, or identifying details without written permission from the client. The exceptions are mandatory reporting cases. CVAC takes great care to maintain privacy within the office by keeping clients files locked and secure. In addition, we attempt to uphold our client's dignity by utilizing a different office space for each client.
