Drs. Karine and Elias Nabbout hosted a gathering in Andover to help the community get to know the Jeanne Geiger Crisis Center.
During the event, Jeanne Geiger Crisis Center CEO Suzanne Dubus moderated a conversation with New York Times best-selling author Andre Dubus and "No Visible Bruises" author Rachel Louise Snyder around the topic of domestic violence.
A number of people from Andover and surrounding communities came out to learn about the center and support its mission to end domestic violence.
Since 1982, the Jeanne Geiger Crisis Center has been helping individuals and families at risk because of domestic violence. What began as the compassionate mission of several volunteer parishioners of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Newburyport in 1982 has grown into a nationally recognized nonprofit organization serving adult and child victims/survivors of domestic violence from Newbury to Lawrence.
The mission of the Jeanne Geiger Crisis Center is to empower individuals and engage communities to end domestic violence. For more information, call 978-465-0999, visit www.jeannegeigercrisiscenter.orgor call the 24-hour confidential crisis hotline at 978-388-1888.
