Welcome to Prudence Crandall Center

Dedicated to helping individuals achieve lives free of domestic violence by providing care, advocacy, support, and education.

For over 43 years, Prudence Crandall Center has been a leader in our state’s efforts to reduce the devastating impact of domestic violence in the lives of victims, their children, and our community.   Today PCC is one of only a few programs in the country offering the full spectrum of shelter, housing and support services needed to offer practical, long-term solutions to the challenges faced by victims, helping them heal and move forward to safe, self-sufficient lives, free of violence.   We also provide professional trainings, prevention programs for youth, and outreach to raise awareness, reach victims in need, and prevent violence in the future.   Through all of our programs and services, we touch the lives of 8,000 adults and children each year throughout our region and state.

YOUR support has changed the lives of thousands of victims and their children over the years. Children like Sasha-- who had only known chaos and fear in her short life, moving from state to state, fleeing her mother's abuser. Until the family found safety, support and an affordable, long-term home at Rose Hill. With that foundation, 6 years later, Sasha has transformed from a troubled youth into the accomplished, focused and confident young adult she was always meant to be. YOUR financial donations gave her that opportunity-- the chance to live without fear and to reach her full potential. Thank you.
This year, we are facing $22,000 in government cut-backs, with more expected--adding to the enormous challenge of having to raise one-quarter of our budget from private sources every year to keep our programs going. YOUR contribution, in ANY amount, makes a difference. THANK YOU!

Annual Fill the Van Charity Toy and Clothing Drive

December 1, 2016, 9:00am - December 14, 2016, 11:00am

Every year, beginning nearly 70 years ago, Papa’s has held charitable giving drives during the holiday season to help feed or clothe families in need in the community. Each year the Papa’s family and our family of associates donate items of need, which are distributed to local charities and given to families for the Holiday. Our collection efforts continue through the month of December with our Toy and Clothing Drive to benefit the Prudence Crandell Center in conjunction with our friends at iHeartMedia Communities. For over 43 years, Prudence Crandall Center has been a leader in our state’s efforts to reduce the devastating impact of domestic violence in the lives of victims, their children, and our community. All of the families who receive the donations are so appreciative of our efforts to make their holidays a little brighter. Each year our collection efforts grow and we are able to support more and more families in need. Our Fill-the-Van Toy and Clothing drive will continue through to December 16th. Your help filling the van, which is located next to our reception desk, is greatly appreciated. In addition to toys the Prudence Crandall Center has expressed the need for warm pjs, slippers, twin-size comforters, sheets & blankets, socks & underwear, fleeces, etc. These essentials are CONSTANTLY in need. Cash donations are also accepted and will be used to purchase items for families in need for the holidays. This tradition of giving back to the community, which goes back nearly 70 years, is very important to the Papa’s family and our family of associates. You can watch the progress of the van being filled by checking back here.
