About Us

Cherokee County is a beautiful, thriving community. We have wonderful friends and neighbors who are a major part of what makes life here so good. Unfortunately, the statistics on Domestic Violence indicate that one third of these cherished friends will at some point be victims of domestic violence. These are our daughters, our sisters, our mothers, our neighbors and our co-workers, and CFVC has been working since 1985 to provide saftey, shelter, and support for them.

Our Vision

We envision a world where intimate partner violence is a distant memory and healthy relationships prosper.

Our Mission

The Cherokee Family Violence Center enhances the safety of those impacted by intimate partner violence through services that empower victims while advocating for a community standard of zero tolerance for violence in the home.
