On Sunday, October 26, FamilyTime Crisis and Counseling Center
held a reception to introduce the 2014 Women of Achievement.
The women were recognized for playing a large role in building
strength in the community through individual commitments and
achievements. As each woman was introduced, they received
enthusiastic applause from a room full of previously honored Women
of Achievement. FamilyTime will honor these outstanding women and
the organization’s 38 years of service to the community at the annual
Women of Achievement Hearts of Gold Gala being held on Jan.17,
2015 at the Hyatt Regency Downtown Houston. ABC-13 Anchor
Erik Barajas will once again emcee. Guests will enjoy a gourmet
dinner, awards presentation, auctions and dancing. They will also be
helping to raise funds so FamilyTime can continue to assist women
and children in the community who are victims of Domestic Violence.
Tickets are $125 per person, $1250 per table of 10. Sponsorship
opportunities are also available. For more information, email Gala
online at www.familytimeccc.org/events.
FamilyTime provides free crisis intervention, counseling, support
groups, a 24-hour crisis helpline, case management and legal
advocacy services to victims of abuse, including domestic violence,
sexual assault and child abuse. They also offer low-cost counseling
for non-victims. “The Door,” FamilyTime’s shelter for women and
children who are fleeing domestic violence, is the only such shelter in
north Harris and south Montgomery counties. Since opening in July
1996, it has provided a safe haven and crisis services to more than
5,000 women and children.
