L to R: Maria DiBari, Jackie Axt

When Executive Director and Founder of Tri-County Crisis Center (TCCC), Maria DiBari, realized how difficult it was for victims of domestic violence to get all the help they needed, she created TCCC, which supports victims and families of victims of domestic violence. In this moving interview, Ms. DiBari describes the personal journey that led her to create this life-saving organization. Jackie Axt, TCCC Board Member, emphasizes the need for the Center by describing the murder of her sister, which could have been prevented if she had had access to the many services that the Crisis Center provides.
