We also provide professional trainings, prevention programs for youth, and outreach to raise awareness, reach victims in need, and prevent violence in the future.

Santa came early to Prudence Crandall Center! We are so grateful to Matt Pfahl and Cathy Callaghan of Rusty Dog Restorations. Their giving hearts & generous friends bless so many people, including our families! At their annual holiday party, they collect toys & financial donations to bring joy to families facing difficult times.

We use these special donations to make holidays bright for families we serve in all of our programs, with “extras” for new families & birthday celebrations throughout the year.
