On Tuesday, Friends in Crisis staff members received news: the facility at 412 E. Sprott St. is temporarily closing its doors on Saturday.

The $1.4 million renovated church is operated through Families In Crisis, a 501(c)3 nonprofit, and leadership is now seeking funds to continue its operations, mostly funded by donations.

My wife works there and is so torn up about this. She loves the clients. I pray they know this has nothing to do with the staff there. I'm broken about all the people I know there. The Families, KIDS and all who are doing their best to better themselves. What about the S.O.'s who are required to have an address....do they go to jail for something they have no control over. They're people too.
