The Cherokee Family Violence Center is a non-profit organization.  As such, we depend on the support of the community to help us serve the over 1,000 victims of domestic violence that we help each year.  There are many ways in which you can support our organization and our mission.

Give – In Kind

You can make a tax deductible gift of in-kind items that will be used directly by the families in our shelter, housing program and in the community.

Click here to find out about our most recent needs list. We are only accepting new donations at this time and have partnered with two agencies that will take our gently used donations and provide them to CFVC clients for free of charge.  We are thankful for all of your ongoing support and hope you will consider bringing your gently used donations to:

Thrift Store

Action Church (Clothing Only)

Donate – Online

Donate online through PayPal.  Your tax deductible contribution helps support the many programs and services desperately needed by families escaping the trauma of domestic violence.

$100 provides shelter for a women and two children in our Emergency Shelter for one night

$75 provides one session of individual or group therapy to help victims heal from the abuse.

$50 supports one Legal Advocate to provide an Emergency Protective Order.

$25 provides after school childcare for one child while her mother works.


Recycle – Cell Phones

Have any old cell phones, Blackberry or other smart phones that you are not using?  Consider donating them to Cherokee Family Violence Center where we can turn your old phones into an electronic lifeline for victims.  If you wish to make an in-kind donation, you may drop off your donation during normal business hours (M-F 9 am – 5 pm).  Please call our Administrative Office at (770)479-1804 to get directions.  If you wish to call after hours to make arrangements, please call our 24 hour Crisis Line at (770)479-1703 / TTY (772)479-7703 / En Español (770)720-7050.


Shop – I-Give or Amazon Smile

iGive has over 1,200 stores available to shop and all give a percentage back to CFVC.  Click here for your shopping to go to our cause.

Do you shop on Amazon? Well did you know if you go Amazon Smile you can shop the exact same, but a portion of your purchase will go to the charity of your choice.


Support a Family

When a new family is moving into the Transitional Housing Program, the new family and their advocate create a registry with items that would them settle in. Click here to support a new family!
