Description

Mission: The Crisis Center for South Suburbia is a non-profit community organization that provides emergency shelter and other essential services for individuals and families victimized by domestic violence and addresses the societal issues that contribute to domestic violence. History: In 1978, Crisis Center (CCSS) founder Dianne Masters had a passion for victims of domestic violence, a passion that grew from personal experience. She led a group of women from the Palos Unit of the American Association of University Women to study the problem in Chicago’s south suburbs. They began a domestic violence crisis hotline in Dianne’s kitchen. In 1979, the Crisis Center for South Suburbia was incorporated as a nonprofit organization. In 1982, Dianne Masters lost her life at the hands of her abuser. But the women she led forged ahead. From a humble kitchen to a residential shelter, from a hotline to comprehensive services, the Crisis Center has responded to the needs of victims of domestic violence throughout the greater Chicago southland community for over thirty-six years.
