Back to Front Page





The Crisis Center in Lake County is celebrating its 40 year anniversary, a milestone for its co-founder, Shirley Caylor of Chesterton.

The Crisis Center extends a number of its programs into Porter County. One of these is the Safe Place program, which Caylor expanded into Porter County in 2009. Today, there are now 111 public locations that display the Safe Place sign, indicating to youth that the site is a safe place to turn to in times of crisis.

The Hilltop Neighborhood House in Valparaiso recently became the latest to participate in Safe Place.

Caylor, a member of the Porter County United Way Agency Executives, was recently honored by Northwest Indiana Times as one of the 2005 Women of Merit.
