In the Spring of 1982, members of the Mental Health Community met to assess the need for a domestic violence program in Douglas County. They identified such a need and began the arduous task of program development. The Family Support Council first opened its door on June 1, 1982 as a private, non-profit agency providing services to resident of Douglas County who were victims of family violence. The Council is governed by a Board of Directors, which reflects the racial, ethnic and social composition of the county and includes a member who has been a victim of domestic violence.
