Through These Doors (TTD), formerly Family Crisis Services, was founded in 1977 and is the domestic violence resource center that serves victims and survivors in Cumberland County, Maine. We provide safe and accessible services to all people affected by domestic violence regardless of race, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, gender, age, primary language spoken, or immigration status.
In collaboration with local partners and all affected by abuse, Through These Doors creates innovative responses and mobilizes our community to promote safety and challenge systems of oppression and violence.
The Community Education and Prevention team along with the Young Adult Abuse Prevention Program (YAAPP) is the prevention team at TTD. We deliver education, services, and advocacy that enable youth to make choices within their dating relationships that are safe, healthy, and informed as well as education and awareness raising events for community members and providers regarding intimate partner violence .
