FCRC, Inc., a private, non-profit organization, officially began operations on January 2, 1978, and has continued as the only program in Allegany County, Maryland that provides comprehensive services to victims of domestic violence and sex crimes. It was a grass-roots effort initiated by the tireless efforts of local agency and lay people who saw a need sorely lacking in resources. That was 30 years and thousands of victims ago.
The agency is dedicated to the elimination of domestic violence, sexual assault/abuse and rape through intervention and prevention by providing shelter and counseling and maintaining a pro-active role in advocating for change in societal attitudes and in systems which permit and promote such violence and abuses.
