The Center for Women and Children in Crisis has changed its logo to one that will portray a more positive and nurturing image for the center and its services.
Betty Engemann, center director, said the new logo will reflect the services the center offers in a positive way. "We want to depict a positive view of the center to the community and to the women who are in need of our help," she said.Hales Allen Inc., a Provo design firm, donated their services in designing the logo and developing posters and brochures for the center.
The logo consists of a contemporary line drawing showing a mother and child in a contemplative mood. The image is based on an illustration by Picasso, and, said Engemann, the logo is one that women will be able to relate to.
"The posters and brochures are important parts of the center's awareness program, and without them we would not be able to reach those who are in need of our assistance," Engemann said.
Engemann said the center is entering its busiest season. "The posters and brochures are important parts of the center's awareness program and without them we would not be able to reach those who are in need of our assistance," she said.
Since 1983 the Center for Women and Children in Crisis has been providing aid to victims of spouse abuse as well as to women and children who are victims of sexual abuse.
"We offer aid to physically and emotionally battered women and their children by helping them realize that they have different options and their futures can be bright and positive," Engemann said.
With 39 volunteers and a full-time staff of 10, the center provides shelter, food, confidentiality, support and a safe place for women and their children to stay while they are working through their problems. Therapy and counseling are available on an in-shelter and out-shelter basis.
The center's 24-hour hotline number is 377-5500.
