Joy of Giving

We provide services to all victims of domestic violence seeking services in Cherokee County.  This includes families residing in our emergency shelter which accommodates up to 12 victims nightly, approximately 70 women and 130 children living in our Transitional Housing Program and to any domestic violence victim in the community that is in need of help.

Because of the generosity of our community, we are only excepting new items. However, we have partnered with two organizations in order for our clients to still receive used items. Salvation Army  at 121 Waleska Street, Canton, GA 30114 receives donations Monday through Saturday between 10AM to 6PM. Action Church at 271 Marietta Road, Canton, GA 30114 receives clothing donations Monday through Friday 9AM to 5PM.
