CFVC is dedicated to supporting domestic violence victims at every stage of their journey. Whether someone urgently needs a safe haven from abuse or is taking steps towards finding permanent housing, our compassionate shelter staff is here, offering round-the-clock care and unwavering support to families seeking refuge from the turmoil of abuse. Simultaneously, we operate two of the busiest domestic violence hotlines in the state, ensuring that help and guidance are just a call away for those in need.
CFVC’s shelter serves clients from across the state of Georgia, offers shelter for anyone in the United States fleeing their abuser, and, when needed, offers asylum for immigrant victims of domestic violence.
About Our Emergency Shelter Program
Creating A Safe Haven
At CFVC, we are deeply committed to creating a safe haven for domestic violence victims that feels like home, regardless of the duration of their stay. CFVC’s emergency shelter is thoughtfully designed to provide comfort and solace, making it more akin to a home than a traditional emergency shelter. Our dedicated, bi-cultural, and bilingual staff are a constant source of support, ensuring that even in the midst of challenging times, individuals and families find comfort and understanding. We believe that by offering this warm and welcoming environment, we can help make scary situations feel a little less daunting.
We embrace the Southern tradition of serving people through food, recognizing its power to nurture both body and soul. Whether you’re a seasoned professional chef, a culinary enthusiast, or simply the go-to takeout connoisseur, you can make a meaningful impact by supporting our shelter staff and bringing joy to our shelter residents through the gift of home-cooked, takeout, or catered meals. Your delicious contributions not only fill hungry bellies but also provide a taste of comfort and care, reminding survivors that they are valued and supported during their time of healing. Join us in sharing the love, one meal at a time, and make a difference in the lives of those staying at our shelter.
