Family Crisis Center hosts Prevention in the Park


Last year 59 sexual assaults were reported in Angelina County and 32 in Nacogdoches County. In honor of sexual assault awareness month, the Family Crisis Center of East Texas is educating the community about sexual assault.

With over nineteen thousand reported sexual assaults in Texas in 2010, the Family Crisis Center is reaching out the community, letting them know where they can get help.

The prevention in the park event educated people about sexual assault and ways to prevent putting yourself in a dangerous situation.

"We hope to provide the community with knowledge about how they can prevent sexual assault as well as how they can help spread the word about services available to sexual assault victims in the community," said Michelle Miller, Program Director, Family Crisis Center of East Texas.

The event honored the 202 victims the center helped last year with a balloon release.

Next Tuesday they will host prevention in the park in Lufkin and give a way plants in pots decorated by victims.
