Tyler Ford's Managing Partner, David Irwin feels victims of domestic violence are the “underdogs” – society tends to think of this crime as a “family problem” and people don’t want to get involved or don’t want to believe it. He feels a special need to help women and children who are escaping abuse. In 2004 Mr. Irwin offered to donate a car so the East Texas Crisis Center could make more money with the raffle. Each year since, Tyler Ford has donated a car to the East Texas Crisis Center for the East Texas Auto & Cycle Show Raffle. In 2007, the Children’s Wing of the East Texas Crisis Center was dedicated to Tyler Ford for their continued support. On behalf of the over 1,800 victims of violent crime we help each year, the East Texas Crisis Center thanks David Irwin and Tyler Ford from the bottom of our hearts.
