Crisis Center Mission
To ensure that no one in our community has to face crisis alone.

Crisis Center Vision
At the Crisis Center we seek to be that extraordinary place where all people find help, hope and healing to make tomorrow better.

Thank You for Your Support!      
Clara Reynolds, President & CEO
If you've ever taken a tour of the Crisis Center of Tampa Bay, you may have heard us say "we deal with topics most people don't like to talk about." Rape, suicide, domestic violence, violent crime, substance abuse; these are all reasons people turn to the Crisis Center of Tampa Bay for help. 
As we all know, there is tremendous stigma associated with these topics, but in recent months we have seen a willingness in society for some frank and open conversations. The #MeToo movement, tragic events like the Parkland school shooting, and the sudden loss of Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain to suicide have forced people to talk about these uncomfortable topics and to strive to find solutions for people who need help. 
At the Crisis Center of Tampa Bay, we are part of those solutions. Through a simple phone call to 2-1-1, people who are hurting can receive immediate emotional support and connections to over 3,000 community resources.... READ MORE

After Years of Hurt, Diane Finds Healing

But the past came storming back when she watched the documentary "Brave Miss World," a film that explores Linor Abargil's journey from
teenage rape victim to Miss World winner to survivor activist. Diane realized she hadn't healed from what happened years ago. Rather, it had impacted her perspective of life and her relationships - and she needed to be free from it....READ MORE

Safe & Comfortable Trauma Counseling at CC's House

In recent months, the Crisis Center's Corbett Trauma Center had an influx of new clients wanting to meet with counselors for therapy. This created some challenges for the three existing facilities where the Crisis Center provides trauma counseling.

Crisis Center staff collaborated with the board of directors to identify South Tampa as an ideal spot to open a fourth counseling location. A unique building that creates a warm and comfortable environment for clients was identified.

We're currently putting the final touches on our newest counseling location, CC's House...READ MORE
