Help Break the Cycle of Domestic Violence

The Grace Center of Fredericksburg

The Grace Center of Fredericksburg is currently developing a capital campaign. Our goal is to raise the funds necessary to build a shelter where those who have been impacted by domestic violence can seek shelter from their abuser.

Closer Than You Think

Domestic violence is not only a national problem, but a community issue as well. Currently, the closest shelters are in Boerne and Kerrville, which stay busy and near capacity.

According to Statistics

1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men have been victims of severe physical violence (e.g. beating, burning, strangling) by an intimate partner in their lifetime.


1 in 15 children are exposed to intimate partner violence each year, and 90% of these children are eyewitnesses to this violence.


Between 21-60% of victims of intimate partner violence lose their jobs due to reasons stemming from the abuse.


72% of all murder-suicides involve an intimate partner; 94% of the victims of these murder suicides are female.
