FPI Reception

Parsons, Ks –  The Southeast Kansas Independent Living Center (SKIL), based in Parsons will be hosting a reception for the Family Peace Initiative (FPI) from 2-3 p.m. next Thursday in the John Spillman Conference Room at KLKC.  According to Dave Sorrick, SKIL Director of Development & Special Projects, the event will provide an opportunity to say “Thanks and farewell” to personnel involved with FPI.  SKIL will terminate administration of the batterer intervention program December 31st . 

Halley Counseling Services, PA (HCS), which founded the program, will again take over operation of the program on January 1st , with no interruption in services.  The contact phone number for FPI will continue to be 620-778-8026.  SKIL stepped up 5 years ago to keep FPI operational when HCS moved to Topeka after Dorthy Stucky Halley accepted the position as the Director of Victim Services for the Kansas Attorney General’s office.   A law enacted by the 2012 Kansas legislature requires courts to refer those convicted of a domestic violence-related crime to undergo an assessment by a certified batterer intervention program.  This requirement is currently in effect for district courts and takes effect July 1, 2013 for municipal courts.  With Halley Counseling agreeing to maintain FPI in Southeast Kansas, the 6-county area will continue to have a certified program to accept court referrals.
