Be the Change!

Volunteer Training March 2016

Gandhi said it best, “Be the change you wish to see in the world.”  We have taken that theme to heart, recognizing that we needed to restructure how we have been utilizing volunteers.  With fresh starts in mind, we now have a dedicated contact for volunteers in our Outreach Coordinator, Niki Lemeshka, and we have rebooted the volunteer training program at Cherokee Family Violence Center.  We are so excited about unveiling our new ideas and ways to be involved at our first volunteer training and are happy to be accepting signups for the training.

We are calling for individuals and groups who are interested in impacting change for victims of abuse to register for the two-day training, which will be held on March 10th (from 6-9PM) and March 12th (from 10AM-4PM) at the Bridgemill Community Room.  For questions about volunteering at CFVC, or to register for the training, please contact Niki at or (770) 479-1804 x215.

Thank You Thursday – Our Wonderful Volunteers

Posted by on May 28, 2015 in Uncategorized | 0 comments


Thank you thursday

This Thank You Thursday we want to thank CFVC’s unsung heroes–our volunteers!

Volunteers at CFVC help in so many ways: from helping at our front desk to allow our staff to focus on assisting our clients, to those who answer our crisis hotline, or help with our children’s support group, or serving on our Board of Directors, our volunteers really do it all. Volunteers are also some of our best ambassadors: connecting us with churches and local civic organizations to assist victims of domestic violence in our county each day.

At CFVC, we know that time is a valuable resource for everyone, and our volunteers are so generous with their’s to give back to a cause near and dear to their hearts. Some of our volunteers have been working with us for years, others are former clients, and some are just members of our community who are looking to give back in a tangible way. Anyone can write a check for a financial contribution, but truly, our volunteers give their time and talent to us, and that’s a gift that can’t be understated.

If you want to give back to your local community, sign up for CFVC’s next New Staff and Volunteer Training, June 11 from 6-9PM and June 13 from 9AM-3PM. If you have any questions about how to get involved with CFVC, please contact Meg Graham at
